FAT16 CHS

Simple 16-bit file system, maximum size of partition = 2Gb, maximum size of file = 2Gb. WinToFlash calculates LBA size based on CHS size.

FAT16 LBA

Simple 16-bit file system, maximum size of partition = 2Gb, maximum size of file = 2Gb. WinToFlash calculates CHS size approximately, based on LBA size.

FAT32 CHS

Simple 32-bit file system, maximum size of partition = 8Gb, maximum size of file = 4Gb. WinToFlash calculates LBA size based on CHS size.

FAT32 LBA

Simple 32-bit file system, maximum size of partition = 2Tb, maximum size of file = 4Gb. WinToFlash calculates CHS size approximately, based on LBA size.

NTFS

Advanced file system, maximum size of partition > 16Tb, maximum size of file > 16Tb. WinToFlash calculates CHS size approximately, based on LBA size for volumes, less than 8Gb.

exFAT

Simple 32-bit file system, maximum size of partition > 256Tb, maximum size of file > 256Tb. WinToFlash calculates CHS size approximately, based on LBA size for volumes less than 8Gb.
