Convert FAT32 to NTFS Vista

  • In the Windows Vista system, converting file system has puzzled users a lot, especially the situation of converting FAT32 to NTFS. In Windows XP the conversion is easy: Input "convert X: /FS: NTFS" (X is the label of the partition) in the DOS command line will just be OK. However, there are three disadvantages of using this way in Windows Vista:
      1. After the conversion, the default state of all the contents and folders are unlimited to any user. Actually FAT32 file system is unlimited to every user. For the security of data, the users need to reset the security features and the right permission of important files.
      2. There will be many fragments in NTFS after conversion.
      3. Make sure there is no other system that NTFS partition cannot indentified except Windows Vista before conversion. If there is, don not convert the partition to NTFS, or the file system after conversion will not be compatible with it.
