hi, i was wondering if anyone kno's how to change the type of file system that my hard drive is, as i am currently using FAT, and would like to change that to NTFS so that i can have files which are bigger than 4gb.
You must have XP Professional. if you have click Start\Run and type cmd and click ok. At the command prompt type CONVERT drive letter: /FS:NTFS You will probably get a series of messages telling you first that the drive is in use. Choose to convert at the next restart. You may get other messages relating to the volume etc. I usually say yes to all. Hope all goes well. I have had minor problems with some apps after running this, but nothing major.
Sorry, by the time you posted your request I was on my way home. I did say you would get a message about the volume. .dave is right, but you could have just said yes and it would have worked. Hope all went ok.
