This article is for you then as it explains exactly how you can achieve seamless transition from FAT to NTFS without involving any data loss. While it is generally recommended to use the NTFS file system because of its stability, security and lesser defragmentation time, most of us end up using FAT32 because that is what most disks are preformatted with.

Clean Water Crisis, Water Crisis Facts, Water Crisis Resources A Clean Water Crisis The water you drink today has likely been around in one form or another since dinosaurs roamed the Earth, hundreds of millions of years ago. While the amount of freshwater on the planet has remained fairly constant over time—continually recycled through the atmosphere and back into our cups—the population has exploded. This means that every year competition for a clean, copious supply of water for drinking, cooking, bathing, and sustaining life intensifies. Water scarcity is an abstract concept to many and a stark reality for others. The Answer to 95% of Your Cydia Problems Waayyyy to many people (Usually with less than 50 posts) are posting how their Cydia won't open, crashes, freezes, blah blah blah and describing their problem with usually half a sentence (If that). I've gotten tired of giving them all the same answer: I have therefore stopped putting up with the n00bs and decided to make a thread showing you how to do this. Requirements:

Startups are grouped into 19 categories, based on the type of products or services they deliver. Each category is represented by an unique color. In addition to that, startups are visually sized according to the amount of financing they have raised, with each individual round displayed as well. Startups are positioned within the main interface on a horizontal interactive timeline, based on the year they were founded.

CrunchBase Reveals: The Average Successful Startup Raises $41M, Exits at $242.9M The CrunchBase dataset has now captured more venture exits than ever, so we decided to take a closer look at what successful startups can tell us about venture investing and the startup landscape. We found that the average successful US startup has raised $41 million and exited at $242.9 million. We also found that there is a strong correlation between larger exits and companies that raised more money, but no such relationship between the amount of time between founding a company and being acquired or taken public. Between the two types of exits, we found that the average successfully acquired U.S. startup has raised $29.4 million and sold for $155.5 million, for investor profits of about 7.5x (if you assume 100 percent investor ownership of the company, which is never the case). Startups that went public in an IPO raised significantly more funds, but also took substantially more venture funding, and thus more dilution. Company age did not seem to factor into a successful exit.
