Not clear on what this thread was about ...

For filesystem size limits:

fat16 is limited to 4GB. fat32's is theoretically 2TB (yes thats terabytes) but
most versions of windows can only read up to 32GB (Windows XP can only make a
new FAT32 partition up to 32GB but I'm not clear on whether or not it can
read a larger pre-exising one). Maximum file size for NTFS is not stated.

File size limits:

fat16 is 2GB, fat32 is only 4GB tho. NTFS is theoretically unlimited.

Infinite complexity begets infinite beauty.
Infinite precision begets infinite perfection.
