What is FAT32X?
Posted on 1998-09-15
I created a WIN95 system disk from one of the computers in my office and have been using it to format some other computers. After the partitioning and formating is completed on the new computer everything looks great, but when using Partition Magic, it reports the partition as "other" and calls it FAT32X. What is FAT32X and how does it affect my computers performance? I can't seem to get an answer from any techs. I have been using "Disk Image" to clone 1 gig hard disks and most seem to work good then suddenly fail to bootup\initialize. I realize this is probably do to the hard drive's poor reputation(JTS Palladium)and high failure rate. In addition, I am unable to change\repartition the drive with Partition Magic. Either the software(PM) doesn't know how to handle it or maybe FAT32X does not function properly on a hard drive with only 1 gig. Please help......
