FAT 32 is a 32bit file allocation table and NTFS is Windows file system. These are disk drive partitioning schemes. NTFS provides more security for the contents than FAT32.

It is a good question. I am afraid the details cannot be furnished in the limited space available for the answer. One has to really make in depth study. For details please refer web site http://www.ntfs.com/
These are file systems: File Allocation Table (FAT); FAT 32- derivative of FAT; and New Technology File System (NTFS). NTFS is reportedly advanced and improved one. All the details required are available on the site.
