    Convert FAT32 to NTFS

    Locked

    by mwalch111 ·

    Hello:

    I wish to convert my partition containing Windows and all other programs to NTFS. Could someone please talk me through this process what I need to do? Also, can I convert my other partition containing all my data files to NTFS format as well? The reason I am doing this is to improve my performance with my machine. I am currently running Windows XP Professional.

    Thank you!

      To convert a volume to NTFS from the command prompt
      Open the Command Prompt window.
      In the command prompt window, type
      convert drive_letter: /fs:ntfs

      For example, typing convert D: /fs:ntfs would format drive D: with the ntfs format.

        And yes, you can convert any partition by substituting in the correct letter of the partition in the command.

      To change from FAT 32 to NTFS file system for more stability, security and less fragmentation, open the command prompt and type:

      Convert C: /FS:NTFS

      “C” being the drive you wish to convert. Make sure there is a space between the C: and the foward slash (/). Once you press enter it will ask you for confirmation and press Y. Then press Y and enter once more to reboot.. This also works for windows XP Home.
