    I'm a 99.9% sure that nothing will get deleted during convertion, when I type this in my DOS prompt:
    C:/fs:ntfs
    I want to convert my FAT32 to NTFS, but I want to be 100% nothing will get deleted. BTW: how long would it take approx. to convert during reboot?
    what are the disadvantages of this conversioin?
    I read all the other threads about FAT/FAT32/NTFS on this board, but still I want someone to tell me, so if anything gets deleted, YOU will be responsible .
    I'm not reformating the drive, but just converting.

    No nothing wii get deleted and the command I beleve is this.

    Code:
    convert c&#58; /fs&#58;ntfs
    Note that "c:" is the drive you want to convert.

    although you will keep all of your files you should backup your data first just to be safe because if anything happens (ie power cut, PC freezes) the partition will become corrupt and you will have to reformat
    There are 10 types of people in the world those who understand binary and those who dont

    that site isnt completly correct......... FAT 32 doesnt support 255 carracters in file names, VFAT does...... VFAT is however backwards compatible with FAT32

    I could not convert because of corrupted directories. These files/folders I could not delete, because they were corrupted and when I delete it tells me that they cannot be deleted because they cannot be read from source file/disk. Anyways, I was converting to fix the problem. Chkdsk does not fix the problems, because it does not find them

    Use multiple CDs, or use a DVD.
