new technology file systemShort for NTFS file system, NTFS is a file organizational system that stores and accesses information located on Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP operating systems. NTFS offers better methods of data protection and file recovery than the previous FAT file system versions.

Note: The Microsoft Manual of Style 4th edition states the redundant phrase "NTFS file system" is correct and you should not define NTFS as new technology file system or NT file system.
