    Open the command prompt by pressing window + R key ,then type cmd and press enter
    On command prompt type "convert volume /fs:ntfs" here volume is drive letter like for e drive this command will be "convert e /fs:ntfs"
    All data on volume will reamin intact.

    We can also use some switches with this command also its a one way process means if we convert FAT32 volume to NTFS then we can't convert back ntfs volume to FAT32 without formating.
    NTFS filesystem provides advanced performance,reliability and security features over FAT32 that why its better to convert volume to NTFS.

    Dear,

    If you want to convert the File Format from FAT32 to NTFS then you have to reboot you PC, at the time of the Rebooting the PC you have to select the "NTFS <Quick>" file format. After that your file format will get converted to the NTFS file system. This file format provide the advance features and this format is faster then the FAT32.

    If you want to convert your file to NTFS file drive system then while doing your disk partitions the files are to be chosen whether to get it like NTFS or FAT32.then the drive will appear as your option and also it is very much better than the FAT32 file system because the NTFS is a standard file system drive which can be used for all the windows operating systems.

    Hello,

    Follow the steps :
    Just go to the Command Prompt and execute the command:
    D:\> CONVERT D: /fs:ntfs
    Where D: is a name of the drive you want to convert. And yes, the correct number of spaces is necessary, so just copy n paste that line into your CMD prompt.
    After machine re-boot conversion process will start and you'll have your FAT32 converted to NTFS without any data loss.
    Yes, you can split your drive into more partitions with Xp, have a look HERE.
    Good luck
    Abhishek

    Advantage of NTFS over FAT32 is that
    increased Performance.
    Increased security.
    Increased data recovery rate and
    ofcourse reability.
    In order to convert the ntfs to fat32
    goto amd and type
    F:/>convert F:/fs:ntfs
