@logan_white Ext3/4 is much superior than FAT
@dimi absolutely, Ext3/4 is much more superior. However the FAT file system do have its advantages.
@logan_white Superior in what way? Please explain.
@rakeshguptamober As I can remember, FAT32 can not store single file larger than 4GB.
FAT has two main advantages over EXT3/4 (and other journaling file systems):
- It is very simple (to implement, understand and troubleshoot)
- It is quite robust on small scale (i.e. carries very little initial overhead)
This is exactly why it is widely used in embedded systems with limited resources and low-volume storage requirements.
I think EXT3/4 is superior than FAT. FAT can be used on Windows. Ext3/4 only can be used on Linux. Ext3/4 is faster than FAT.
@logan_white FAT system does not support journaling where as Ext3/4 is having journaling system which protect the data from any system failure.
Let mw know if i am wrong.
@iAnatoly Also, many OS's support FAT: MacOS, Windows, Linux. For ext3 some require additional drivers or 3rd party software.
