  • Windows XP is an operating system that was produced by Microsoft for use on personal computers, including home and business desktops, laptops, and media centers. It was first released in August 2001, and is the most popular version of Windows, based on installed user base. Windows XP was the successor to both Windows 2000 and Windows Me, and was the first consumer-oriented operating system produced by Microsoft to be built on the Windows NT kernel and architecture. However, the system build-in disk management tool stile fails to meet the increasing demand of enormous XP users'. As the daily storage medium of our data, disk and disk partition are vitally important for the safety of our data. Naturally, user should have a good management over disk partitions. Another problem that baffles user is the diverse partition formats of partition. Currently, we have two types of file systems; FAT and NTFS. As the release of Windows 98, Fat 32 has replaced FAT 16 while NTFS is the latest file system that is extensively promoted by Microsoft, not only fitting large disk but offering richer file functions.
