NTFS is more stable on the drive with the OS, but for a slave drive leave it like it is. To answer your question about losing data, the answer is yes if you convert. You have to format to convert.
Hi, I have an external HDD of 120gb and I was wondering if a) there is any benefit in going to NTFS from FAT32 and b) will I lose any data already stored on it? I have a lot of big digital image files and a few have become corrupted of late. I'm running a Toshiba laptop with WinXP.
Thank you much
