How to Do It:

You don’t need to install a
program to change the filetype
from FAT32 to NTFS.
1. Press the Start button.
2. Go to Run…
3. Type in “cmd” without the
quotes, press OK.


4. Go to your C:/ folder, by
typing in cd\, (or “cd..”just as
long till you have reached C:/ ).
See above image. Likewise, type
in “cd c:\” works, as well.


5. Go to your “My Computer”
icon, and see the name of the
letter that stands in from of
the drive you want to convert!


6. Back in cmd, Press in
“CONVERT X: /
FS:NTFS” (without the quotes).
The X is for the letter your
system drive, or external drive
name. (see Step 5)


7. On the question ‘convert
lost chains top files Y/N?‘
press ‘y‘ and continue.


8. cmd will now check the file
system and the rest. If your
cmd finishes, your file system
is converted to NTFS. You can
close down cmd. (If you want to
check if it really did finished,
go to ‘My Computer’ and right
click on the drive, select
‘Properties’ to see what kind of
file system it has).


9. If cmd says: ‘X: was not
converted to NFTS, the
conversion failed etc, you must
follow the next steps!


10. As you can see above, my

cmd failed the first time. Next
solution.


11. Type in “chkdsk X: /f“,
where X is the letter of your
drive. Wait a while to finish.


12. You’ll be asked to ‘convert
lost chains top files Y/N?‘
press ‘y‘ and continue. Wait for
it to finish.


13. After this, cmd will say
that converting was successful.
Check it by going to your
computer, and single click on the
drive to see what kind of file
system your drive has. You may
need to repeat step 6.
