    Microsoft has not replaced FAT32 yet!

    As more and more computers are running UEFI, FAT32 partitions are not ready to fade away!

    Luckily, I believe we can scratch FAT16!

    Anyway, it will take many years before MS has the opportunity to replace NTFS. I think it took almost 15 years to completely replace FAT32.

    ReFS is not really a file system, so it will not replace NTFS, which is. ReFS is just parity, etc., scrubbing and automated repair on Windows spaces, which is also not a file system.

    Really? Windows 8 (the original iteration) was hated by many because it was hard to navigate. Plenty of anecdotal evidence on various places throughout the internet including Youtube.

    Uhhh.. no. ReFS is a filesystem. In fact, it was originally based on NTFS.

    Although ReFS inherited some of the NTFS code base initially, it is a different file system with different uses in mind. In fact, disk tools that work with the NTFS Master File Table (MFT) won’t be able to work with ReFS because ReFS has its own mechanism for keeping up with file metadata.

    Au contraire Mon Fraire!

    On every HD that I set up for myself, my storage partition is always formatted in FAT-32 mode.
    In fact, on the PC that I just retired, with Windows XP on it, the C: drive is formatted FAT-32.
    That offers flexibility for me, that NTFS does not offer.

    Oh, and I still run a 16 bit game on Windows 8.1, Pro, X86, my new OS.*

    * When you try to install a 16bit program on 8.1, X86 the installer will stop and ask you if you want to install compatibility for 16 bit software. When you click "Yes" it will install a .dll that makes that possible. Thank You MS programmers.
    The 64 bit version of Windows 8.1 has NO SUCH compatibility.

    Cheers Mates!
