FAT file system and FAT partition
FAT is the short form of File Allocation Table which is usually used on Windows 3.X. FAT comes with 16 bit and 32 bit in general and it has many limitations compared with current file systems, such as it can only deal with hard disk that is partitioned into 2GB sectors and file name is less than 11 characters including extensions. To meet advanced requirements, FAT improves itself and FAT32 comes into use. FAT32 is able to handle file names that are up to 255 characters and lager partitions. With the advent of technology, NTFS (New Technology File System) is widely used by Windows and it has been proved to be a more effective file system version than FAT32.
