Just had new HDD fitted in local shop and noticed that new c drive is formatted in Fat32 and is 160gb holding winxp sp2. D drive is 80gb with games and pictures. Read other posts about merits of having both drives NTFS especially that which holds the OS. I was wondering if I really need to convert the C drive to NTFS. Posts from last year suggest both should be NTFS with quite a few posts in amongst them saying that it can stay as is.

for doing otherwise I advise you to convert the FAT32 drive to NTFS. Apart from anything else, NTFS is inherently more secure than FAT - you can protect individual shared folders on a network with NTFS, and you can't do that with FAT.
