Hints and Tips

Think Before You Convert

NTFS is a robust and secure disk operating environment. But no operating system other than NT can read an NTFS partition, and once you've converted a FAT or FAT32 partition to NTFS, there's no going back. So think hard before you convert. If your system has only one hard disk partition and you want to dual-boot, stay with the old FAT system.
