I would like to know if I can convert from ntfs to fat32 i know you can do it the other way around however i don't know of anyone doing the reverse. My games don't work in ntfs I want to go to fat32 and hopefully without formatting ... again

Thanks

Yes, but you will need Partition Magic to do the trick. The only other way is to make a full backup, delete and recreate the partition (as FAT32) and then restore everything. But I sincerely recommend you to get PM. Great Tool!

Rightclick the NTFS partition > Convert > Help. Find the Convert NTFS to FAT or FAT32 and it will list the conditions under which you can convert.

Eh? they must be pretty old games, cos the operating system takes care of ntfs/fat32 most programs (except ones that need direct disk access, like defraggers) won't notice a difference.

r u sure your games just won't run under XP?

Renegade??? Is that the "Battle for Jacob's Star" thing?? If so, no wonder. That's a DOS based game!!!!

Good game, though. I still have a copy here somewhere. hehe:p

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
