storage, NTFS / FAT32?

hi!

hope you all had a great x'mas, also hope not too many of you had to sleep on the floor or worse, head in sink with sick....

im, still half drunk too.....lol

anyway, i bought myself a WD Passport external 2.5'' HDD, its working fine, but when i check it says FAT32 for format, and my other 3.5'' external HDD are all NTFS.

should i change the WD HDD to NTFS too?

i'd go for NTFS, better performace, enables support for files bigger than 4gb. But i think you'll loose some of the plug and play support that fat32 has. (in other words you should always use safely remove hardward.)
