Converting FAT32 TO NTFS File System Without Losing Data

Let us see how to convert FAT32 to NTFS File system without losing any data.

I’m using Command prompt here. No special software necessary.

  • Open Windows Explorer and note down the drive letter which you need to convert.
  • Open cmd prompt with Administrative rights ( Right Click and select Run as Administrator )
  • Now Run “chkdsk D: /f (without quotes). Here D is the drive which I need to convert to NTFS. Replace it with your Drive name.This command checks the drive for errors and fixes them automatically.
  • RunConvert G: /FS:NTFS” (without quotes).
  • Wait for the conversion to complete. You will see a message stating conversion complete.

All done. To check , right click the drive and check its properties .
