Does FAT32 handle FAT16 drives
Posted on 1998-08-05
I have two physical hard drives and an extended partition on one of the drives, so the drives are C:,D: and E:
They were all FAT16 drives, and I just installed win98 in C: and converted to FAT32 using PartitionMagic.
I left the other partitions at FAT16.
Everything worked OK for a few days, but suddenly I could not access the D: drive FAT16 drive from explorer - the computer hung for a minute or two.
I can access the extended FAT16 partiton in drive E: without any problems.
What has happened to my D: drive? Can it be fixed?
