My driver is divided to three partitions and every one contain a lot of data and they are in fat32 format.

I need to make one of them ntfs so I can use it in some applications.

How to convert this partition from fat32 to ntfs without losing any data?

NTFS (New Technology File System) is already enabled when installing Windows XP platform and is the standard file system used in Windows NT-based operating systems.

Why not just use FAT32, the current file system used in your hard drive for your applications. It does not have any problems or any conflicts when used in any kinds of applications.

But, on the other hand, NTFS file system is much better and is the preferred file system used in any Microsoft’s Windows operating systems. If you really want to convert one of your FAT32 partitions to NTFS, download Partition Magic. It is a partition tool for creating sets of partitions in a hard drive and checking the status of the partition for any errors.

There is a free trial version download of Partition Magic here: Download Link/. Download it and try converting your partition to NTFS.

Hello,

While i know your looking for a solution for your problem the truth is they are none that will do exactly what you want it to do, you are looking to convert a file system and the basics of this is to re-write the table structure of the drive, now it really does not matter what program you use the end result and the process is the same thing, if you use a program like partition magic all it will do is copy your files, format the drive NTFS then put back your files on it,

so what i recommend is you do the same copy your files to another source then format the drive using the NTFS file system, then copy your files back onto it.

good luck
