A+ Question of the Week: Secure File System

AplusQOW3When tasked with preparing a hard drive with the most secure file system, you should choose which of the following?

    1. NTFS
    2. EFS
    3. FAT32
    4. UDF

The correct answer is 1.

NTFS offers multiple security features, such as encryption and file/folder permissions, while FAT and UDF do not. The Encrypting File System (EFS) is a feature used by NTFS for this purpose, but is not itself a file system. Furthermore, UDF is used with optical discs, not with hard drives.
