    I know it's possible to convert a fat32 partition into a ntfs partition without having to reformat.

    - Will it damage my files!?

    I know it's better to reformat but did anyone do this
    and worked ok!?

    Thanks in advance and if you recommend to do this
    don't forget to specify the command!

    Thanks - FourDiceS

    From the command line: CONVERT C: /FS:NTFS

    Alternatively, you can use a 3rd party product such as Partition Magic 7.0. Lets you do everything from within the GUI and it's a delight to work with.
