    NTFS Vaults

      What are the pros & cons of NTFS vaults apart from the 4GB size restriction of FAT32?

      Does NTFS provide any further security? How safe is opening vaults on foreign systems (both ntfs & fat32) ?

      Thanks.

          Well the obvious advantage is file size.  But NTFS is more secure, has better performance on larger volumes and other advantages.

           

          There's a table here: http://www.ntfs.com/ntfs_vs_fat.htm

           

          Basically nothing should be using FAT32 anymore except in certain cases, most notably small USB flash drives.

           

          I noticed this had been sitting here for a while.  It's a public holiday in N. America so have no idea if and when a McAfee person might spot this.
