Under Windows 10, it is easy, for example, to convert USB data carriers that are FAT32 to NTFS without data loss!
Converting the FAT32 to NTFS also works on older versions of Microsoft's Windows operating systems and whether you are converting the FAT32 file system to NTFS on a Windows desktop desktop PC, or on the go on the tablet, Surface Pro / Go
Here's an example of the E:\ drive from FAT32 to NTFS!
1. Start the cmd.exe , alternatively also with colorconsole.exe possible!
2, type the following command:
convert E: /fs:ntfs
3. There is another query to see if the volume should be dismounted . In "E" is not about if it is currently in use, so with "N" confirm.
4. Then confirm the query "Should it be converted the next time the system is started" with "Y" .
Now only Windows "Restart", before the system starts it will be converted to NTFS.
And already the corresponding FAT32 drive on Windows 10 is converted to NTFS!
This looks like;)
C: \>convert e: /fs:ntfs
The file system type is FAT32.
CONVERT can not be executed because the volume is being used by another
process. The deployment of the volume must first be revoked.
ALL OPEN REFERENCES TO THIS VOLUME ARE INVALID THEN.
Do you want to dismount the volume? (Y / N) N CONVERT can not get exclusive access to drive E:.
It can not be converted at the moment. Should it be converted at the
next start of the system (Y / N)? y
