WINDOWSer,

For Windows95 OSR2, do I need to choose FAT16 or FAT32 if it need to have a higher performance ?

For large drives/partitions (>2GB), FAT16 won't work.
FAT16 = higher disk performance.
FAT32 = greater disk capacity.

Andrew,
I have no problem with the points.  I only want to answer your question to your satisfaction.... if I am capable.
There is a lot more to FAT32, but I thought this would answer your question.
anything else?

Why are Office 365 signatures so complicated?

Trying to setup transport rules for Office 365 email signatures and can’t quite figure it out? Having to test the signature over and over? Make things simple by using Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365.

Ralph,

If I only need to concern about the performance, which one is better ?

It will depend somewhat on the drive, as cluster size is adjuted according to drive size.
FAT16 should transfer data faster, as there will likely be many more clusters for the drive to access with the use of FAT32.

andrewyu,
Is there anything else you need assistance with?  If not, perhaps you could take the time to grade this question before it is auto-graded....  unless there is something more you need.

Ralph

Andrew,
I would like to assist you in learning more about the question you have asked.
As your profile shows, all your grades given to date are "C"s.
I'm guessing that it's due to the questions being auto-graded by E-E's computer, because you haven't graded them.
Is there any more information that I can provide that will incline you to grade this question?
I'd appreciate it.
Regards,
Ralph

Andrew,

After viewing some of the other questions you have asked, I am at a loss to know why you don't respond to the help you're getting at the E-E site.

I will contact the site administrators to have this question removed rather than receive another auto-grade.
I know it means that you'll get your answer for free, but at least I will not have that "C" on my questions answered list!

Judging from the responses to your recent question at the Windows Programming area, I think you're going to find help for your questions in short supply in the future.
