Windows We already know quite a lot about Windows Phone 7, but there's also a boatload of stuff we do not yet know. Dutch (oh yeah) technology news website Tweakers.net managed to get hold of a number of confidential internal Microsoft documents [Dutch] regarding Windows Phone 7, and they contain some intriguing stuff.

What is TextFAT? Isn't it "exFAT" instead?

I was thinking the same thing.

I've heard of ExFAT, never TextFAT

There are a few strange things in the article.

Another is the 'user space' and 'kernel space' monikers. You very rarely hear this in the Windows world, they're unix terms.

Microsoft uses user mode and kernel mode. I've never seen the 'space' word used in official MS documents.

Yea, it is ExFAT. It is not the only inaccurate detail.

-FAT32 can cover more than 4gb, with LBA on, it can do a good job even on 320gb drives.
-The file size limit is 4gb, not storage limit
-The file count limit is 4 billion
-The minimal file size is drivesize in bit * (1/4 billion)

Other wise, the only other real limitations of FAT is the lack of security and file system automatic recovery.

It's not exFAT - it's actually texFAT, where the "t" stands for transactional.
