Because MyDocs partition is what gets mounted when you plug your N900
into a computer, and the typical filesystem for USB-attached storage
is FAT32. For example, if you buy a USB hard drive or MicroSD card it
will almost always come formatted as FAT32...

Good news is that with N900 you are free to repartition that as you
like, see the wiki for more info:


Have fun :)
