About NTFS Partition

NTFS, which stands for New Technology File System, was developed by Microsoft in 1993. It took place of FAT. NTFS had several technical improvements including support for metadata and advanced data structure.

When you format or partition a volume in your NTFS drive, you are able to choose a file system for the new volume. If you confirm the NTFS file system, the read-and-write speed and security of the new volume will be improved.

Then are the advantages of NTFS:

  • NTFS came with better performance, reliability, and better disk space utilization.
  • It included additional extensions like file system journaling and a security access control list.
  • It included new features like sparse file support, reparse points, disk usage quotas, distributed link tracking, and Encrypting File System.
