Hi all i got 2 hard drives.
One is split into 3 C D & E.
The other is split into 2 I & J.
Is it possible to convert all my drives from
Fat32 to NTFS format without losing my files
or having to do a format?
i am rinning xp pro.

thanx

Yes is the simple answer.

At a command prompt type:

X:\> CONVERT X: /fs:ntfs

Where X is the designated letter of the drive you wish to convert.

This will reformat the drive to NTFS with no loss of data.

yes you can here,s how------ click start/run type cmd and press {return} at the command prompt type c: /fs:ntfs and press {return}
The partion that windows is on will tell you that it cant do because the volume needs to be "dismounted" just click yes to do it on next boot
Change the drive letter for each partion
