What is exFAT

Saw a new type of disk format, exFAT. I am only knowing FAT, FAT32, NTFS, and some others for Linux operation system.

Today, when I try to format a microSD card, it has a new option, exFAT.

What is exFAT?

 

File size limit is now 16 exabytes.
Format size limits and files per directory limits are practically eliminated.
Like HPFS, exFAT uses free space bitmaps to reduce fragmentation and free space allocation/detection issues.
Like HTFS, permission systems should be able to be attached through an access control list (ACL). It is unclear if or when Vista will include this feature, however.

Interestingly enough, exFAT is not used and was not designed for formatting hard drives. It is only recommended in flash memory storage and other external devices only. This is why it is currently not considered a huge competitor to NTFS on hard drives.

 

For me, I know that flash drive capacity is getting bigger and bigger. And also the file size, I mean the video file size is also getting bigger and bigger.

FAT32 has a limitation of 4GB file size limit.

NTFS and exFAt can store a single file with 5Gb or evern more.

Microsoft Multilingual User Interface

A lot of pre-installed Windows XP on the new computers are English version.
Some of my friends know little English. They prefer Chinese.
So the question is how to convert the task bar and menu list of XP from English to Traditional Chinese or Simplified Chinese.
The answer is Microsoft Multilingual User Interface (MUI).
MUI is an add-on to the English version of Windows XP Professional and Windows 2000 family of operating systems, and will not install on localized versions of Windows XP/2000 or on Windows XP Home Edition. Every additional language installed will require approximately 115 MB extra disk space for Windows XP, 45MB for Windows 2000; East Asian language support requires an additional 250 MB.
Microsoft Office also has its own Multilingual User Interface. (Office MUI)
