You might sometime get the need to know what file system type a certain drive has on Windows 10. It is essential to know the file type especially when you’re deep in drive configuration or troubleshooting, and when you’re using the new File Recovery Tool.
In this guide, we will show you how to see the Drive’s File System on Windows 10.
Checking the Drive’s File System Type on Windows 10
Here’s how you can check it:
- Open “File Explorer” in your Windows 10 PC and locate the drive you want to determine the file system.
- Right-click on the drive icon, and select “Properties” from the context menu that pops up.
- In the “General” tab on the drive “Properties” window, you will see the “File system” type mentioned below the drive’s name. With the “File system” label you will find the Drive’s File System type.
Typically, Windows 10 uses the NTFS (NT File System) as its default file system, but sometimes you will see some other file systems such as “FAT32” “exFAT”.
