Convert FAT to NTFS without data loss

You can convert FAT 32 to NTFS file system without having to format in Windows XP. Go to command prompt.(Type cmd in Start>Run press Enter).
Then type the following command
CONVERT [driveletter]: /FS:NTFS
Press enter. Replace drive letter by the drive you want to convert(without []).
Remember you can't convert NTFS to FAT without data loss.Also Microsoft OSs prior to Windows 2000 can't read or write to NTFS. Also it is recommended that you back up your data.
