I am considering changing my Hard disk from FAT323 to NTFS should i go ahead. I know it compress data on the disk but what will happen to data on my disk for example i have uni assignments saved on my hard drive if i convert to ntfs can i still access them and what will happen if i use those assignments on a different PC which has FAT32 will i lose some control over them.

Go right ahead, but make 2 backups first.

A file created on FAT32 can be read on NTFS. For example a .doc can be created using word on a FAT32 computer. The file can then be read/edited whatever you want on a computer with NTFS.

Measure twice, cut once. Just to be sure!!
