    Whats the difference? I'm doing a windows install through bootcamp and I'm at the part where I have to choose among 4 options FAT (quick)/NTFS (quick)/NTFS/FAT

    I think I'll use NTFS, but do I use "quick" or the regular NTFS?

    The difference between quick and normal format is that during a normal format the volume is checked for errors. Both methods do exactly the same thing as far as wiping the disk and setting up the filesystem.
