Reformatting or converting a partition to use NTFS

  FUl2tiV3 04:59 15 Jan 2006

acer 4151 60gb hdd, win xp sp2. split into partitions c and d, both formatted in fat32.

i am having trouble using/editing/burning large video files due to the 4gb+ file sizes. can i format D as NTFS? it is, or will be empty. is it really as simple as right clicking D/format/select NTFS/and start? is there any disadvantage to using quick format? are there any issues having a fat32 and NTFS partitions concurently?

thanks in advance

Why can't I restore my latest backup image?


Acer eRecovery Management only supports FAT32-formatted D drives. You will not be able to restore your backup image once you convert the D drive to NTFS format.
