Two Ways to Convert External Hard Drive to NTFS from FAT32

Geeks - There are a few different ways to convert a hard drive from FAT32 to NTFS, depending on what you're looking to do. Here are two options:


Using the built-in Windows utility:

Open the Start menu and search for "Control Panel"

In the Control Panel, search for "Administrative Tools"

In the Administrative Tools window, click on "Computer Management"

In the Computer Management window, click on "Disk Management"

Right-click on the FAT32 hard drive that you want to convert, and select "Format"

In the Format window, select the "NTFS" file system and click "OK" to begin the conversion process

Using the command prompt:

Open the Start menu and search for "Command Prompt"

In the Command Prompt window, type the following command: convert [drive letter]: /fs:ntfs (replace "[drive letter]" with the letter of the hard drive you want to convert)

Press "Enter" to start the conversion process

Both of these methods will convert your hard drive from FAT32 to NTFS, but keep in mind that the conversion process will erase any data currently on the hard drive. Be sure to back up any important files before beginning the conversion.
