Win98 Partial disk conversion Fat16 to F

By andrewsj ·
Used Win98 conversion utility to convert a 2GB drive to Fat32. Conversion seemed successful. Copied drive image to 13GB drive using ImageCast3 V4.0 expanding partition without problems. Booted from new disk and used approx 30days until disk reportedfull. Win98 reports disk as fat16 2GB (disk full). PartitionMagic V4.0 reports disk as Fat32 13GB, but also shows disk full at 2GB. Any way to correct this?

Back up your data and make the necessary conversions using Partition Magic. It is a much more reliable product.

Using Image Cast3 you copied the 2gig over to the new drive that is reading the copied drive image not the 13 gig drive partttion.
using partition magic you can resize the partition on the 13 gig,and format as fat 32

Win98 cannot convert it because it cannot find the end of the Fat16 partition. PartitionMagic cannot convert it because it already sees it as Fat32 and has no options for further conversion. Thanks anyway.
