When it comes to taking care of your SSD and valuable data, would it be better to use NTFS or FAT32 for the file system on an internal data partition? Today’s post looks at the ‘pros and cons’ of choosing the best file system to use.

NTFS is pretty resilient, it keeps a second copy of the MFT at the back end of the drive.
I've accidentally formatted one of my drives as FAT32 (my external drive died, internal drive had the same size and I didn't double check...).
Getdataback recovered everything no worries, NTFS is just better, there's a reason microsoft wont let you format drives >20gb as fat32 anymore(and I think you dont even have the option anymore, you have to use exfat)..
Just remember, SSDs are good for hundreds of gigabytes a day of writes for years before you run the chance of seeing bad blocks, its not really something worth worrying about
