How To Convert A Fat16/32 Partition To NTFS

Increase performance by converting your FAT16/32 partition to NTFS

If you're running Windows XP, converting your FAT16 or FAT32 partition to NTFS will provide advanced performance, security, and reliability to your hard drive's file system. Be aware however that the conversion process is one way (once you convert you can't go back!).

Here is the procedure for converting your file system to NTFS:

  1. Backup your data. This is by far the most important step, especially if you have data on your hard drive that cannot be easily replaced.

    The conversion process almost always completes successfully, but if you encounter one of the rare instances when it doesn't, it might just ruin your entire day.
  2. Click Start
  3. Click All Programs
  4. Click Command Prompt
  5. Type convert drive letter: /fs:ntfs where drive letter is the designation for the drive to be converted
  6. Enter the volume label when prompted to do so
  7. After the conversion process has been completed, you'll get this message:  Conversion complete
  8. Exit the command prompt window.
