How to convert a FAT partition to NTFS

Written by IT News on 9:13 AM

I write this article based on my friend question about changing the Fat format to NTFS. For windows XP it is recommended to use NTFS partition, its faster then FAT.

In NTFS share theoretically can be of almost any size. The limit certainly exists, but not in point, since it would be more than enough for the next hundreds of years of development of information technology at any growth rates. What about practice? Much the same way. The maximum amount of NTFS share at the moment is limited only by the size of hard disks. NT4-will probably have some problems when trying to mount a drive, if any part of its steps back more than 8 GBytes of physical disk, but the beginning of this problem relates only to load share.

Okay, here is how to convert a FAT partition to NTFS, perform the following steps:

• Click Start, click Programs, and then click Command Prompt.
• In Windows XP, click Start, then click Run, type cmd (cmd is use to call the command prompt) and then click OK.
• At the command prompt, type CONVERT [driveletter]: /FS:NTFS.
• Convert.exe will attempt to convert the partition to NTFS.

Although the possibility of corruption or loss of data during the conversion from FAT to NTFS is minimal, it is best to perform a complete duplication of data on disk, it must be converted before they convert the performance of command. It is also advisable to check the integrity of the reserve before you go and run RDISK and updating the Emergency Repair Disk (ERD).

    I will recommend this post to every person who has fear in changing of file system during installation because this post is fabulous.

    But some time it becomes very difficult for a common user to recover the lost data by him self. Same thing happened with my system. I felt unable to recover that lost data by using some options given in windows.

    There was a logical error in my partition drive then luckily my friend suggested me to use a recovery tool called stellar phoenix partition recovery software that helps me in recovery of lost partition, also proficient in recovery of CD, DVD, and USB storage media.
