    The number of disadvantages just aren't large enough to not use NTFS for any reason (other than on an OS that doesn't support it). My advice would be, if you can use it then use it because it is a newer, better file system with more features and capabilities.

    Plus - if you've never used it then it will be a valuable learning experience if you ever plan to do any work in the IT field. NTFS is great with very few drawbacks when compared to FAT32.
