jaclaz Posted March 2, 2006 Share Posted March 2, 2006 Fat32 first offered improved protection because it keeps a 2nd copy of the FAT and replaces the live version if it gets corrupted, that was 3/4th of the security trick I will admit.Actually FAT16 also has a second partition table.FAT32 has a second (spare) bootsector in sector #6, just like NTFS (depending on which version), has one in the middle (NT4.00) or at the end of the partition (Win2k/XP/2003).jaclaz Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
