NTFS and Floppies ?

  Derek 12:20 01 Nov 03

I have Win XP Pro operating on FAT 32 and it's suggested that I convert to NTFS for greater stability but, I use floppies to back up my Sage accounts also, I use floppies liberally in various keyboards and transfer (copy) from midi files and folders on my hard disc for use in the said keyboards.

Any advice would be welcome. Kindest regards.

Converting your hard drive to NTFS will not affect your ability to transfer files from HDD to floppy and vice versa.

I converted to NTFS when I changed to W2K and have found no trouble with floppies.

Do I go into Start/Run and type in

convert c:fs:ntfs with spaces as indicated.

And.. I have a slave HD on fat32 which I use for backing up.

Just out of interest floppies are always FAT8 - irrespective of what the hard drive uses.
