What are the disadvantages of formatting a 16gb flash drive as NTFS?
My 16gb USB Bytstor flash drive came as Fat 32 file format. I use it only in win xp computers/laptops.
I found a method of formatting the flash drive to NTFS. I thought that this would make it show the full 16gb capacity but it still only shows 14.9gb
Is there any downside to changing the file format of the USB drive to match that of my desktop PC? Will it be any faster than a Fat 32 flash drive?
