Windows operating system enjoys the most computer users which mainly supports two file management systems, FAT and NTFS. FAT, short for File Allocation Table, developed and partly owned by Microsoft, is provided for use of MS-DOS and is the file system utilized by all non-NT based operating systems.

NTFS is a standard file system for Windows NT and the subsequent Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista and Windows 7. NTFS has replaced FAT file system to be the best file system available since its release, offering file system for Windows operating systems.
