How to Convert FAT to NTFS Without Losing Data
NTFS And FAT32
It are filetypes for your harddisk. For windows 98se and before, is the filetype for your harddisk fat32 or fat16.
Nfts is the standard for windows XP. People say that nfts is faster then fat32, i can imagine that
Espessially when defragmenting, fat32 is way slower.
When having windows 98se on your pc. Or when you buy a external harddrive, the standard is fat32. Annoying.
Let's say you have fat32. You want to unrar a large file (> 2 gig) and windows tells you you cannot unpack
because you have to less harddrive space... How is that possible when having enough space??? Because windows
is too lauzy to tell you, that fat 32 does not support large files on it.
So operating on a fat32 system, you cannot have large files > 2 gig or >4 gig on it. That is a problem
when having a 4 gig iso file of a movie. so it would be interesting to upgrade.
You don't need a program to install to change the filetype from fat32 to nfts.
