Answer

This question was answered on April 7, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

FAT32 is only available in Windows 95 rev2 (OSR2) (click here for instructions on determining revision), Windows 98 and Windows 2000 Please note if you have Windows NT 4.0 or below it does not support Fat32

To determine if your drives are running in FAT32 open My Computer and highlight the drive you would like to see is using FAT32 / once highlighted click on the drive with your right mouse button and click Properties If the File system indicates FAT the hard drive you selected is running FAT16 However if the File system indicates FAT32 then your drive would be utilizing FAT32.
