    When reading a file on a FAT partition do you have to read in the exact amount of data specified in the root directory entry (file size)?

    Or, can you just read in data cluster-by-cluster until you read in the EOF cluster even if it only fills up part of that cluster and you read in some blank data as part of the file?
