Convert fat32 to ntfs without losing data

  • With the constant elevation of computer technology, some file system due to own shortcomings don't support files with large size. The game development companies, for example, who want to obtain more spectacular graphic effects, are producing game programs with increasingly larger size, which results in storage failure due to unknown reasons. Many gamers think it is their computer hardware configuration problem that leads to this dilemma. However, the possibility that partition file system doesn't support files with that size can also be the reason. So, we can covert file system to solve this problem. File system organizes and distribute file memorizer space, and is responsible for storing files and protecting and searching those files. File systems comprise FAT, NTFS, ext2, ext4, HFS and HFS+, etc. Each file system has own features in every aspect. Files more than 4GB can not be allowed to be stored on FAT32 partition and user must convert FAT32 to NTFS to successfully store those files as NTFS support maximum file size up to 2TB.

    NTFS - the best choice
    Why should we convert FAT32 to NTFS? What is the advantage of this operation? What is the different of these two file systems? The biggest feature of NTFS, in comparison with FAT32, is security performance as it provides security insurance needed by servers or workstation. Meanwhile, NTFS is a recoverable file system with self-repairing function and user will seldom need to run disk repair program. NTFS uses log files and checkpoint information to automatically recover consistency of file system in case of system failure. In addition, NTFS can set access permissions for sharing resources and files and adopts smaller cluster to manage disk space more efficiently. Last, it can also compress disk, encrypt data, allocate disk quota and manage dynamic disk, etc. Therefore, the majority of users are willing to convert FAT32 to NTFS. Then how can we realize this operation?
