Should I reformat?

Ok, quick question. Ive been running two systems, one with NTFS and the other Fat32. I want to go NTFS ( I was just testing things)

So should I reformat the drive ( It's not a real big deal in my case right now ) Or should I convert? Are there any disadvantages to the convertion? Does it make the system as stable as a first formated NTFS system.

Thank you



I'd go the reformat root, I dont know of any advantages or disadvantages, but I like a fresh start


You should be able to convert it with no problem, if you have to do it that way. Although I am not so sure it would be as stable as it would be if you were to format the drive.
I would format, repartition, and then go ahead. It would just make me feel more comfortable, personally.
I've heard of some slowdowns when converting, so i'd have to go with the crowd and say you should do a fresh format, it's always best for everything to start clean :)

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
