FAT32

How can I convert a hard drive partition from FAT16 to FAT32? I think there was a way to do this in Windows 98. But how about Me?

Mark - Thanks for your reply. But there is no FAT32 Drive converter utility under System Tools in my Start Menu. Also, the File System is identified as 32-bit in the My Computer Properties panel, but FDISK (DOS) shows the partitions to be FAT16. The DriveCopy utility program shows them to be all simply FAT. Do you know if the Drive Converter utility is available for download anywhere. I tried Microsoft.com but couldn't find it. - Saul
