Im sure I read somewhere sometime that if you convert a fat32 system to ntfs it causes a serious slowdown. Its far better to a clean install using the ntfs filesystem.

Dont know if its true but its what I read!!!

I've converted the fat filesystem to ntfs and didn't notice a slowdown. In fact it greatly increased speeds for me. Just back up your files like I should have (I didn't need to in the end though).

There is no reason not to convert - there will be NO slowdown (where did that come from?) and you need not back up anything first. It's a simple straightforward process. Just type:

CONVERT C: /FS:NTFS

in the command line (or substitute the C: with whatever partition is being converted) and press ENTER.
