    I recently found out that FAT32 supports the option to maintain a backup copy of the FAT table, in case the main one gets corrupted. Does anybody know how to force a disk to format such that it contains a backup FAT table?

    EDIT: Disregard; I found out that it's only Windows CE that formats without the backup FAT table. Needless to say, someone's made an app to do it the right way. ;)
