NTFS. More security and, in sort, the file structure on the drive is managed better.

NTFS is not secure, there is no such thing as a secure filing system. its just more stable because it is less prone to file fragmentation, has compression, and disk qoutas.

Hey rookie1010,

NTFS IS more secure that FAT did you forget about
EFS Encryption. You can also remove administrators, users
and limit the ability to make changes to any files by the
Read, Write, Change attributes as well as setting the
file to Read Only.

But lets not get off the topic here is the link that describes the
advantages and disadvantages of the different file systems.

Worked4me no NTFS is not secure, but it has more security features. thats what mike was trying to tell me when he got all politically correct you can just take ownership of everything if you have the right access permissions and EFS is not too hard to break.
