NTFS --> FAT32 ??


(sten) #1

hey

Anyone out there knows if you can transform a NTFS partition
to FAT32 without destroying any data ?

would be happy if someone knew :wink:

answer is (no)

not to my knowledge as it would be like trying to rebuild a house without moving the people out.

the only way would be to copy all data onto the other partition or a cd etc and then copy it back (but i guess thats what you were trying to avoid)

:frowning: :frowning: :frowning: :frowning: :frowning: :frowning:

if you do find a way I WON’T BELIEVE YOU

good luck

i think my brother tried it once and it didn’t work/ wasn’t a way

It seems to be possible, at least if you are willing to pay $69.95 USD.

I find this answer at:

Q: Can PartitionMagic convert file systems?

A: PartitionMagic 8 can convert FAT, FAT32, and NTFS file systems interchangeably. In order to perform these file system conversions, you must install the operating systems that use those file systems. (For example, to convert to or from NTFS, you must install a Windows NT-based operating system, such as Windows NT, 2000, or XP.) You must also adhere to each files system’s rules when performing conversions. (For example, to convert a partition to FAT, the partition must be no larger than 2 GB.)

Hoppas att det kan vara en fungerande lösning ztonzy

get a new hard drive and copy them straight onto that in the other format for that price.

that is a good piece of software if it can do that!!!

Hej och tack !!

I already have PM 6, but only for MS-DOS mode, so I am not sure it
will work for me, wonder if it is possible to upgrade it somehow,
I got it via my mainboard when I bought it…

thanks again

I always use the DOS version of PM, if you use the win-version you will have to restart and apply the settings in dos anyways.
