This is the alternative file allocation system available with the Windows NT operating system. It allows for larger disk drives with smaller cluster sizes, as well as a performance increase and more robust security.

NT File System. An improved file system supported by Windows NT. It supports greater reliability by supporting things such as transaction logs that can help in disk failure recovery. It supports greater security by allowing permissions to be set for directories and individual files. It supports more data by being able to span volumes and reach data across different physical disks. NTFS has 64 b cluster addressing and has a theoretical maximum file and volume size of 2^64 B (18 EB). Note that OSs such as DOS and 95/98 cannot access NTFS partitions. See also my article on Hard Drives.
An advanced file system designed for use specifically within the Windows NT operating system. It supports file system recovery, extremely large storage media, and various features for the POSIX subsystem. It also supports object-oriented applications by treating all files as objects with user- defined and system-defined attributes.

New Technology File System. Main advantaged of NTFS over FAT or FAT32 file system are: fault tolerance, security (encryption), quota management (an amount of disk space allocated to each PC user (useful in mid to large server-client environments) and native file compression (an ability to view a compressed file or folder without first decompressing it). NTFS is supported by Windows Server family of operating systems and by Windows NT, 2000 and XP.
