Explaining File Systems: NTFS, exFAT, FAT32, ext4 & More



NTFS, FAT32, exFAT, ext4 and APFS are just some of the file systems used to organize data on storage drives. This video outlines the differences between these and other file systems, and explains how to choose between them.

  • What is crazy is requiring FAT32 for secureboot and/or uefi when you can't have files bigger than 4 gb.

  • If you try to format a >32GB drive with FAT32, Microsoft limits the partition size to max. 32GB due to "technical reasons". Well, that a big FAT lie! Linux doesn't impose any limitations upon formatting a >32GB frive with FAT32! In reality, Microsoft forces you to solely use their NTFS to overcome their limitation of 32GB partition size.

    GParted under Debian has been a great help, and will always surpass anything else out there!

  • "16 Exabytes, or effectively unlimited" Can't wait to look back on this and just think, we really thought 16 exabytes was alot.
    It's just as funny whenever reading system architecture books and seeing "Since it support up to one gigabyte of ram, it practically doesn't have any restrains"

  • When I’m using an NTFS external drive on a Mac, I have to use a “translation program” so that I can freely read and write to it. It’s useful as some file downloading software I need only run on MacOS and I haven’t been able to set up a VM with a USB pass through so that I can use my software.

  • I have found EXFAT to work great on Linux! It required only one terminal line to install the driver and that was that. Easy and worked between Windows and Linux. If you're working with larger files, you can't go wrong with it.

  • I did miss btrfs. It had some trouble with full disks when it started, but I wonder what the state of the art is with respect to BTRFS. I you ever look at filesystems again, or find any other excuse to use btrfs, could you have a look at it?
    P.S. I vaguely remember btrfs being standard for ubuntu, but as I run fedora, I am not sure. My filesystem has been ext4 for a long time now and won't change until I get a new computer and have to do a fresh install.

  • At 6.18 – slide “HFS, HFS+ & APFS” has typos “HSF+” and “HSF Extended” in its main text

  • Big companies have to unify file system, or let the user decide which one to use. Windows don´t recognize hfs, Apple don´t recognize NTFS, and so on. It´s a childish dispute.

  • This video makes me think there should be an open source file system that becomes an industry standard.

  • 7:54 the important part 🙂
    In my Nokia 7.2 phone I have external 128 MicroSD card.
    The phone can see the card only when the card is formated as FAT32.
    can I store big file like Windows 10 20H1 Image on this MicroSD card while it's formated as FAT32?

  • So basically in 2020 Windows still using file system from 1993? Guess it's so perfect they just can't imrove it)

  • so if am making a NAS project with a SBC like raspberry pi
    i have 2 choices:
    – use a linux distro as an os like OMV then chose FAT32 and then share my files to windows computers and mac
    – or use a windows as an os and chose exFAT.
    both options suck to be honest.
    if only linux wasnt stuborn or the major os makers agree on something commun once in their lives for f sake

  • I've run into the file size limitation (as well as file path limitation) in the past and it tends to not be handled particularly gracefully. It's something I try to keep in mind, but as far as issues go, they occur rarely enough that I will usually first assume the problem is something else.

  • Thanks for the explanation. I have been tinkering with PC's for many years but never taken the trouble to research the different file standards. BUT, seriously dude, you need to look at getting a new hairstyle. 1976 Bill Gates doesn't cut the mustard these days.

  • Spent ages trying to copy over some files from my friends Mac formatted Hard Drive – one particular folder just wouldn't copy, no matter what.
    Eventually I realized the problem – there was a ":" colon in the folder name, which Windows file systems don't like!

  • Btrfs omitted? In mainline Linux kernel since 2009, default on SUSE, considered by many to be next Linux general default. Adds capabilities ext4 doesn't have (snapshots etc.)

  • honestly, this didn't really explain anything. well, mentioned but journaling means. but not much on how they ACTUALLY work and how they are different on a technical level. I now know some numbers, but not where those numbers come from.

  • update, well old update… linux mint and other distros bbased on Ubuntu have natively supported HFS and HFS+ for many years, at least since 2014. Have a great day. Ext has been error free for over 20yrs where ntfs is the bain of windows.
