As far as I know, you cannot see ntfs files by using win 98/win me.

Using ntfs file system, Win 2000 and xp can see fat 32 files.

Having accidentally formatted a harddrive to NTFS, how can I convert it back to FAT32?

Thanks.

To do so is complex unless you are well up in I.T so for as the average people are concerned i would say you can't.

Reformat it and chose Fat32, you will lose every thing on the drive

when I right click on the drive and choose reformat the only file system choice given is NTFS?

Only way other than above is XP running on a Fat32 will read NTFS

Astrix, I don't know if u can read a NTFS Volume in Mellenium, on FAT32 System but u can certainly do it from DOS. I have found a web page for u to explain it better for u, whilst also providing the download, use a floppy or burn the ISO image to CD/DVD. Just follow the instructons on the webpage:
