Where Does FAT Fail?

Where Does FAT Fail?

Sponsored by Datalight

As an early option for data organization, the FAT file system attained a certain ubiquity. This paper examines underlying mechanisms used by the FAT file system, characteristics that leave it vulnerable to corruption, and some ways vendors (including Microsoft) are trying to make it more reliable. Are they successful? Can reliability be achieved without sacrificing interoperability? Is the performance cost worth the benefit?
