Flash Drives: FAT32 vs NTFS vs ExFAT E-mail

Ok, a little while back I ran a somewhat large USB Flash Drive Comparison with 21 drives compared, today I got part two of that comparison. I've taken the 8gig and 4 gig drives, nine in total, and formatted them FAT32, NTFS and ExFAT and ran all of the tests over again for a comparison of how the file systems work on the drives.

And yes I truly ran all of the tests over again, I recently upgraded to SiSoft Sandra 2009 SP2, so I needed to re-do all of those tests as well. I've been at this for quite some time now, and I've got a whole lot of information for you inside.

The reason for this is out of my curiosity and other people mentioned as well why not compare the file systems, so to satiate my curiosity and to give everyone as much information as possible I took a very large chunk of my time and dedicated it to this rather large article. So sit back, relax and continue on, I've got tons of graphs for you all broken down and separated by file systems and tests. TestFreaks

I am interested in the comparison. Ntfs is restrictive on the security stuff and it becomes a hassle.
