Normally I wouldn't bother with this, but since you rejected a technically correct answer, perhaps you'd also like to reject Microsoft's technical article 307881 How to convert a FAT16 volume or a FAT32 volume to an NTFS file system which can be found at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;307881

From which is stated:

"The conversion to NTFS is a one-way process. After you convert a drive or a partition to NTFS, you cannot convert it back to FAT or to FAT32. To restore the volume to the previous file system, you must reformat it as FAT or as FAT32. This action erases all existing data including your programs and personal files. In this case, you must either restore your data from a backup, or reinstall your operating system and programs."

Now go ahead and reject this answer also and confirm my opinion that the only technical decision you should be making is when to ask "Would you like fries with that?"
