Convert FAT to NTFS File Format



To convert a FAT partition to NTFS, perform the following steps.

In Windows XP, click Start, click Run, type cmd and then click OK.

At the command prompt, type CONVERT [driveletter]: /FS:NTFS
e.g; d:/fs:ntfs

Convert.exe will attempt to convert the partition to NTFS.

NOTE:-Although the chance of corruption or data loss during the conversion from FAT to NTFS is minimal, it is best to perform a full backup of the data on the drive that it is to be converted prior to executing the convert command.
