Convert FAT to NTFS

  • A hard disk becomes workable only after being portioned. Under Windows operating systems, FAT and NTFS are the two most common partition formats. It is quite clear to users that NTFS bears better performance than FAT and the vast majority of users want to convert the FAT to NTFS. Regrettably, however, the Windows built-in disk management tool fails to cover this function and user must turn to a third-party partition magic software. Talking about free partition magic software, I would like to recommend MiniTool Partition Wizard. MiniTool Partition Wizard is a partition manager based on Windows operating system and developed by MiniTool Solution Ltd. that support 32/64bit MBR and GUID operating systems including Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Server 2000, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 2008. Furthermore, MiniTool Partition Wizard is able to increase partition, extend partition, wipe partition, resize partition, merge partition, create partition, delete partition, format partition, convert partition format, copy partition, hide partition, explore partition, change drive letter, etc.
