None of the active developers know, or want to know, the vvfat code.
There is some FAT32 support there, but if you use it:
fprintf(stderr, "Big fat greek warning: FAT32 has not been tested. "
"You are welcome to do so!\n");
So if you just want to play with it, go ahead. But if you care about
your data, maybe vvfat isn't the right tool anyway.
