  1. I am using Windows Me and I am planning to install Windows XP soon and reformat my hard disk to NTSF. I read that you cannot change the location of the partial .dat kazaa downloads because its location is written into the file itself. I want to backup my downloads folder and then re copy it into the same location after I instal Windows XP. Does it matter if the files were originally created under FAT32 if they are going to be read and modified in Windows XP in NTSF? Also will I have any problems sharing files in a network with a Windows 98 machine?

    So you're planning to make a clean install of XP, not to upgrade? You could convert the partition to NTFS without affecting the files. As far as I know, the information for downloading is not in those .dat files but in 'db' directory in KaZaA.

    You could keep FAT32 and install WinXP...
