Is NTFS or fat32 faster?

While file transfer speed and maximum throughput is limited by the slowest link (usually the hard drive interface to the PC like SATA or a network interface like 3G WWAN), NTFS formatted hard drives have tested faster on benchmark tests than FAT32 formatted drives.

Keeping this in view, what is the maximum file size for fat32?

FAT32 Systems and 2GB File Size Limit
Max File Size32 MB2GB
Max # of Files4,07765,517
Max Filename Size8.3 or 255 characters when using LFNs
Max Volume Size32MB2GB 4GB with some implementations

What is the difference between NTFS and exFAT?

FAT32 is an older file system that's largely relegated to USB flash drives and other external drives. Windows uses NTFS for its system drive, and it's also ideal for other internal drives. exFAT is a modern replacement for FAT32, and more devices support it than do NTFS — although it's not as widespread as FAT32.

What is the largest file size for exFAT?
