Well, its actually have nothing to do with NTFS or FAT32.
My question is why you want to change the format?
And this format is around us long time ago.. so I guess even MS website have information on the differences between the two format, etc.
FAT32 is more compatible with older version, and NTFS have more security features.
Some FAT32 system won't be able to read NTFS formatted HD.
The danger to use convert.exe is, sometimes it won't works... just like any other programs.
At an office where I work, the XP installation has been upgraded, but the file system is FAT32. I tried to install a photo card reader, and the system crashed. What are the dangers, in converting to NTFS using the convert.exe command, in losing data already installed? I don't want to be blamed for the wiping out of any of the current set up, but I only know NTFS, and have never used FAT32 with XP. If anyone has experience of this I would be grateful to hear. TYIA.
