Must Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 always be installed on NTFS disk partition?

Yes, Windows-7 and Windows Vista refusing an installation on FAT-32. The other Partitions can be formatted as FAT16/FAT32 or NTFS!  

Win-7 on 30 GB NTFS disk partition
Windows 7 on 30GB NTFS partition

Windows 7 can handle FAT16 and FAT32 drives without problems, but that was already in Vista so that FAT was not accepted as the installation partition.

File systems!

A file system is the overall structure in which files are named, stored, and organized. Windows supports three file systems: FAT, FAT32, and NTFS. You choose a file system when you install Windows, format an existing volume, or install a new hard disk.

Before you decide which file system to use, you should understand the benefits and limitations of each file system. Changing a volume's existing file system can be time-consuming, so choose the file system that best suits your long-term needs. If you decide to use a different file system, you must back up your data and then reformat the volume using the new file system. However, you can convert a FAT or FAT32 volume to an NTFS volume without formatting the volume, though it is still a good idea to back up your data before you convert.

Quotas and converted NTFS volumes!

Disk quotas work with all NTFS volumes on Windows 2000 or Windows XP systems. However, files on volumes that have been converted from FAT or FAT32 to NTFS automatically belong to the administrator, and so quota on these files are charged against the Administrator account. This is seldom a problem because administrators have unlimited volume use. This issue only applies to files that existed before conversion to NTFS; files created after conversion belong to the appropriate user.

Because disk quotas are based on file ownership, any changes to a volume that affect ownership status of the files on it, including file system conversion, might affect disk quotas for the volume. Therefore, you should understand the changes to ownership that the conversion might cause before converting existing volumes from one file system to another.

Windows file systems!

Before formatting a volume or partition, consider the file system with which to format it. Windows 2000 and Windows XP support the NTFS file system, File Allocation Table (FAT), and FAT32. NTFS is the recommended file system for Windows 2000 and Windows XP because it supports several features that the other file systems do not, such as file and folder permissions, encryption, large volume support, and sparse file management. However, you must format the volume or partition as FAT if you plan to access files on that volume or partition from other operating systems, including MS-DOS, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Millennium Edition, and Windows NT 4.0.

Encrypting File System overview!

Encrypting File System (EFS) provides the core file encryption technology used to store encrypted files on NTFS file system volumes. Once you encrypt a file or folder, you work with the encrypted file or folder just as you do with any other files and folders.

Encryption is transparent to the user that encrypted the file. This means that you do not have to manually decrypt the encrypted file before you can use it. You can open and change the file as you normally do.

Using EFS is similar to using permissions on files and folders. Both methods can be used to restrict access to data. However, an intruder who gains unauthorized physical access to your encrypted files or folders will be prevented from reading them. If the intruder tries to open or copy your encrypted file or folder he receives an access denied message. Permissions on files and folders do not protect against unauthorized physical attacks.

You encrypt or decrypt a folder or file by setting the encryption property for folders and files just as you set any other attribute such as read-only, compressed, or hidden. If you encrypt a folder, all files and subfolders created in the encrypted folder are automatically encrypted. It is recommended that you encrypt at the folder level.
