Windows 2003, 2000 NT, Windows XP, and Windows 7 make use of the NTFS file system, for organization of files on the hard drive. It also supports large volumes and powerful storage solution such as RAID. NTFS is the Windows NT equivalent of the Windows 95 file allocation table (FAT) and the OS/2 High Performance File System (HPFS). However, NTFS offers a number of improvements over FAT and HPFS in terms of performance, extendibility, and security.
Some key features of NTFS include:
- They make use B-trees very effectively to manage large file clusters.
- The data about the clusters is spread across many clusters, and not just one single location as it is done in FAT file system.
- NTFS can hold files which are very large in size very easily.
- NTFS has a mechanism that restricts the access of certain users to certain specific files.
Despite these diverse features and advantages, there are instances when the entire NTFS partition is lost or gets deleted. The reasons may be many like, virus attacks, sabotage, malware, accidental deletion of partition etc. But there is absolutely no reason to be anxious, if you can get hold of a potent NTFS recovery software.
