ME and NTSF partitions

I ran across a program called NTSF for Windows 98 which purports to allow
98 to read NTSF partitions in the free version. One needs to purchase the
full program to have read/write access. I installed it on ME and it allows
me to both read and write to NTSF partitions.

I have a P4 2.4Ghz with the Intel Application Accelerator installed as well
as the Intel Inf files for the mobo - and I was wondering if perhaps
something within that setup is causing the program to read/write?

More importantly though is this question - is it safe to write to a NTSF
partition from ME? The data is not critical - just raw AVI files waiting
to be processed after capture - I am more interested in perhaps damaging
the disk? Would that be a possibility?

If not - then I guess I will stay with ME as I always liked it better than
XP - just couldn't have large files.


thanks in advance.

You still won't be able to process large files, AFAIK, since there's an
inherent limit in the OS. You'd need to be able to at least move the
swapfile onto the NTFS partition, and I doubt that that would be a stable
configuration.

That said, there's nothing to be lost by trying it - there's no physical
harm it would do to the drive.
