The disk structure does not describe how a hard drive or floppy disk physically works, but how it stores files on the disk. In other words, it describes the formatting of the disk (file system, partitions, the root directory, and the directories). A file system is the overall structure in which files are named, stored, and organized. File systems used in Windows 7 include FAT, FAT32, and NTFS. Although FAT and FAT32 were primarily used in older operating systems, NTFS is the preferred file system in Windows 7.
