Formatting: Preparing a hard drive volume or floppy disk for use by placing tracks and sectors on its surface to store information.

File System: The overall structure that an OS uses to name, store and organize files on a disk.

FAT: A table on a hard drive or floppy disk that tracks the clusters used to contain a file.

NTFS: The file system for the Windows NT/2000/XP operating systems. NTFS cannot be accessed by other operating systems such as DOS. It provides increased reliability and security in comparison to other methods of organizing and accessing files. There are several versions of NTFS that might or might not be compatible.

Partition: A division of hard drive that can be used to hold logical drives.

Partition Table: A table at the beginning of the hard drive that contains information about each partition on the drive. The partition table is contained in the Master Boot Record.
