    You cna convert from Fat32 to NTFS in the command prompt:

    Start - Run - CMD
    type in c: /FS:NTFS
    assuming you want to convert drive c:

    You will also need to visit Microsoft's web site for more help on setting up permissions.

    P.S once the drive is changed to NTFS you cannot got back to Fat32.
  6. i think u can by deleting that ntfs partition or something like that

    You can only relly got back to FAt32 from NTFS by formating the drive and starting over - Partition magic claim to be able to do it on the fly -but I have never had it work for me.
