Any of a large number of oily compounds that are widely found in plant and animal tissues and serve mainly as a reserve source of energy. In mammals, fat, or adipose tissue , is deposited beneath the skin and around the internal organs, where it also protects and insulates against heat loss. Fat is a necessary, efficient source of energy. An ounce of fat contains more than twice as much stored energy as does an ounce of protein or carbohydrates and is digested more slowly, resulting in the sensation of satiety after eating. It also enhances the taste, aroma, and texture of food. Fats are made chiefly of triglycerides, each molecule of which contains three fatty acids. Dietary fat supplies humans with essential fatty acids, such as linoleic acid and linolenic acid . Fat also regulates cholesterol metabolism and is a precursor of prostaglandins .

(File Allocation Table) The file system used for compatibility. Developed for floppy disks in the late 1970s, FAT was the file system for hard drives in DOS and also in Windows prior to NTFS. Today, FAT32 and exFAT are widely used for USB and external storage drives because they are supported by every major platform, including Windows, Mac, Linux and mobile devices. In addition, FAT is used for digital camera storage.FAT Directory and TableThe FAT directory maintains a list of file names and dates, and the FAT table has an entry for each drive cluster. When a drive is high-level formatted, the FAT table is recorded twice.The directory points to an entry in the table where the file starts. If the file is larger than one cluster, the first table entry points to the next entry and so on until the end of file (see below). See FAT32, file system, cluster and NTFS.
