Filesystem suggestions

Post by dev86 »

Hi everybody,

at first I have to say, you made a nice piece of software. While I was installing it on a vm, I realized that the system only supports FAT.
It would be nice if it could handle FAT32. Of course you can't implement NFTS because Microsoft wouldn't allow that for sure.

Also I tried to install the .NET Framework (2.0) which you put in the available Softwarelist. But each time I tried to install it, there appears an exception an the rollback starts.

Hi, ReactOS already supports FAT32, FAT(16) supports partitions up to 2Gb only.

That's the point. At the install routine there was only the option of FAT and I thought that's FAT16.

Depending on the partition size you get a 12 16 or 32 bit fat format. Windows does the same. We will support ntfs in the future but first we will have ext2 support
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.
