From the technical side: the inactivity status is being stored in the users table, the banning is stored in a separate table. Using banning instead of inactivity has therefor a slight performance penalty. Other than that (and from the banned/inactive user's point of view), there's no real difference.

Would inactive users be able to view files and rate files. I think Banned users cannot access the site itself. Pls correct me if I am wrong.

You have asked your second question in a separate thread already. It got answered there as well. Stop causing extra moderation effort. Don't double-post! Don't cross-post! One question per thread! Additionally, you could easily have tested this for yourself, as suggested in the other thread.
