File System Overview

To have a good understanding of how and why you can set up or deny access to data on a Windows XP Professional system, you need to have an underlying understanding of any native file security that may or may not be in place.

One place to start would be the file system the operating system is utilizing.

Windows XP Professional supports the three major computer files systems of File Allocation Table (commonly known as FAT or FAT16), FAT32 and NTFS.

Quote
The term FAT is used to refer to two related file systems: the original 16-bit FAT file system and its 32-bit successor, FAT32. If you use FAT to format a partition during Windows XP Setup, Windows uses FAT for partitions that are smaller than 2 GB and FAT32 for partitions that are larger than 2 GB.

Strangely enough, Windows XP Setup cannot create a FAT32 partition that is smaller than 2 GB, nor can it create a FAT32 partition that is larger than 32 GB. These limitations are not imposed by the FAT32 file system itself, as third-party utilities can be used to format FAT32 partitions smaller than 2 GB or greater than 32 GB.
