We believe that users may usually consider that whether there is a way for them to convert FAT to NTFS without formatting. If users want to change file system, the computer will ask them to format the certain partition. What’s more, when users change FAT to NTFS by the way of formatting partition, if there are important data on the certain partition, such as working files and study materials, all of them will be lost after formatting. We know that formatting process means that all data on a certain partition will be deleted to spare free space for new written data. So, at ordinary times, we should be careful with partition format.
When it comes to how to change FAT to NTFS, users may think of making use of Windows built-in small tool, Disk Management to change file system right away. Of course, Disk Management has multiple functions for users to choose. The functions of it include “Change Drive Letter and Paths”, “Format”, “Delete” and so on. If users use this built-in tool to convert FAT to NTFS, all data on the certain partition will be lost after formatting. So, they had better back up data on the chosen partition before doing all operations.
Since users have to back up data in advance if they use DM to change FAT to NTFS, we’d like to introduce them a way to convert FAT to NTFS without formatting, that is to say, they can use MiniTool Partition Wizard to achieve this.
