VI Chapter 0001: Test For Success Questions
1. What happens when you delete a file from the Recycle Bin?
A. Clusters are flushed.
B. The files are moved to C:\Windows\Temp.
C. Sectors of hard drive are blanked/erased.
D. Associated entries in the FAT are removed.
Explanation: Recall that the Recycle Bin is a temporary holding place for deleted files, designed to give you one last chance to retrieve a deleted file before you empty the recycle bin, or specifically delete one or more files from it. When a file is deleted from the Recycle Bin, or the Recycle Bin is emptied, the file is removed from disk, so it is not true that the files are moved to a temp directory after being deleted from the Recycle Bin. Clusters are not flushed, and hard drive sectors are not erased that term implies that the data is somehow wiped out, which doesnt (normally) happen on Windows. However, the clusters related to the file can no longer be accessed, because the FAT entries (directory entries) allowing access to the file have been removed.
2. You back up files on an NTFS partition using the Backup utility, and then later restore them to a FAT32 partition. Which file properties are retained? (Choose two)
D. File attributes.
E. Long file names.
Explanation: Encryption, Permission and Compression are not. FAT32 does not offer encryption or file access permissions.
3. Which advantages does FAT32 have over FAT16? (Choose three)
A. Programs load faster.
B. Fewer resources required.
C. Greater file security allowed.
D. Drive mappings are more reliable.
E. Increase storage efficiencies.
Explanation: Neither FAT32 nor FAT16 offer file security.
4. What do you need to do to make a Windows 98 system dual boot with Windows 2000 on a single partition?
A. Install Windows 2000 in NTFS.
B. Install Windows 2000 in FAT 32.
C. Delete any FAT32 partitions and install.
D. Run Windows 2000 Setup: Dual Boot version.
Explanation: Windows 2000 understands FAT32. You cannot install a dual-boot Windows 2000 and Windows 98 configuration on an NTFS drive, because Windows 98 does not understand NTFS.
5. A technician needs to convert a FAT16 partition to NTFS from a DOS prompt. Which command should the technician use?
A. SYS C:A:C:
B. FDISK /MBR
C. FORMAT C:/S
D. CONVERT C:/FS:NTFS
Explanation: Sys transfers system files but does not reformat the drive. FDISK/MBR will sometimes help recover a corrupt disk. Format c:/s will reformat the hard drive, erasing all of its contents.
6. Your client reports that he is running Windows 98 and has a 2GB hard drive. It is formatted as FAT16; he is nearly out of disk space. What is the simplest and quickest way to increase his disk space?
A. Convert the drive to FAT32.
B. Run the Space Recovery utility.
C. Replace the hard drive with a larger one.
D. Back up the data, format the drive and restore the data.
Explanation: Converting the drive to FAT32 is an easy way to get some more disk space quickly, if the disk is currently formatted as FAT16. There is no Space Recovery utility. Replacing the hard drive and backup/format/restore both take far more time than running convert.
7. In Windows 98, which of the following conversions is possible?
A. FAT16 to NTFS.
B. FAT32 to FAT16.
C. FAT16 to FAT32 and FAT32 to FAT16.
D. FAT16 to FAT32 but not FAT32 to FAT16.
Explanation: Windows 98 does not support NTFS. And, you cannot convert from FAT32 back to FAT16 using the standard utilities available within Windows 98 (although there are third party packages that will allow this).
8. You have set up a dual boot computer. Your Windows 2000 installation has been tested, and has no problems. However when in Windows 98 you cannot see the files in the NTFS partition. Windows 98 resides on a FAT 32 partition and Windows 2000 operates on an NTFS partition. Why?
A. The partition has not been made active.
B. File sharing between the drives has not been enabled.
C. Windows 98 is not compatible with NTFS.
D. NTLDR is not set to load when starting Windows 98.
9. In Windows 98, what will ensure that you have created a FAT16 partition?
A. FAT 16 is not supported by Windows 98.
B. Select N when prompted to enable large disk support running Fdisk.
C. Select N when prompted to create an Extended partition when running FDISK.
D. Select Y when prompted to implement a large partition when running FDISK.
Explanation: Large disk support is the code phrase that indicates a version of FAT that will work on larger drives than are supported by FAT16.
10. After you install NT Workstation 4.0 on your Windows 98 computer, you find that in NT Workstation you cannot see your Windows 98 partition. Why?
A. The NT partition is formatted with FAT16.
B. The Windows 98 partition is formatted with FAT32.
C. Windows 98 was deleted during the installation.
D. The Windows 98 partition has not been set as active within NT Workstation's settings.
Explanation: NT does not support FAT32, so it will not see the contents of a disk formatted with it. If the NT partition is formatted with FAT16, that would not prevent it from seeing a Windows 98 partition unless that partition was FAT32. When you set a partition active, it is across all systems, not just per OS, so if you can use Windows 98 on the computer but cant see its partition when running NT Workstation, active partition is not the issue.
11. What advantages does FAT32 have over FAT? (Choose two)
A. Faster file access.
B. More efficient compression.
C. Reduced cluster size.
D. Increased logical drive size.
E. Increased security attributes.
Explanation: FAT32 doesnt support security attributes. Additionally, faster file access and more efficient compression are not necessarily attributes.
12. Which file system in Windows 2000 supports compression?
13. You have taken a hard drive from a computer using Windows 98 and installed it into a computer running Windows 95 as a second drive. The BIOS recognizes the drive but the drive does not appear when you open My Computer. Why?
A. You forgot to run Convert32.exe.
B. The new drive is partitioned with FAT32.
C. You forgot to install a new driver for the drive.
D. The new drive is write protected.
Explanation: Windows 95 (a) does not support FAT32. Running Convert32 will convert a drive from FAT16 to FAT32, so that wont help. Windows 95 includes IDE drivers automatically. Its unlikely that the drive is write-protected (some high-end SCSI drives offer this feature, but most dont).
