Hi all,

I'm running Windows 2000 Pro on a FAT32 file system. I've got a program
that creates a very large number of temp files in a single directory.
Somewhere between 25000 and 30000 files the system reboots. After the
reboot I noticed file system corruption. (It toasted my mailbox files. This
may have been due to having eudora running at the time of the crash.)

Ain't NTFS the only sensible filesystem anyway?
