My aunts computer is a HP Pavilion 6645C with 564MHz Intel Celeron, 320MB of RAM and a 20GB Hard Drive. Now her computer came formatted FAT32. I will be reformatting it for her soon. Non of the HP "original" stuff will be placed back onto her computer. I know quite abit about computers but I do have my weak spots and this is one. Now my questions is this. Will her computer hold NTFS format and which is better to use NTFS or FAT32? Also if one is better than the other what's the reason's? Please only the people who know the answers to my questions for a FACT respond. Im not try'n to sound mean or anything but this needs to be done soon and I dont want to have sort threw a bunch of people bumping heads together over this all.
