if i remeber rightly if you go to my computer then right click on the drive hit properties then there should be a button some where that says NTFS i think?

or failing that get hold of Ppartition magic being very carfull using it it hsould contain a utility to do this job for you good luck mate

You can actually do it with the CONVERT command on WIndows.

START | RUN | CMD
enter this: CONVERT C:/FS:NTFS

That should do it.

From FAT32 --> NTFS , no data lost.

NTFS --> FAT32 , alot of data lost.

And besides, converting from NTFS --> FAT32 is an hassle.

I have done it last week. Fat32 -> NTFS.
But I used Patition Magic! Works fantastic.

Use professional partition management software like Partition Majic etc.

Is it safe to do the change also in laptops? I did it before on home pc, but now when I own a laptop, I have been a bit uncouraged for that... Is it possible to get a linux working beside the ntfs-partition?
