Hi to you all.

I have a multivision PC which was supplied with its hard drive set at FAT32, which I did not know until today.
Q? How can I set this to NTFS without formating the HD. Is there a tool for doing this? I don't waqnt to loose all my data and systems installed software.
I use win hoem XP, HD is 120Gb

Go to Start > Run and type:
cmd <enter>

At the command prompt, type:
convert c: /fs:ntfs <enter>

If this is your boot drive, answer yes to all prompts,
and then it will ask you if you want to perform the
convert on next reboot.
