Convert FAT32 to NTFS without losing data by using the partition magic MiniTool Partition Wizard

With the development of computer technology, some file systems can not support large files because of their own defects. For instance, game programs are becoming larger and larger for the sake of more gorgeous operation interface, and they can not be stored in our computers, perhaps. Many users may consider that there is something wrong with hardware configuration. Actually it hardware configuration is not the only matter to blame. The file system of the partition where the software is installed may not support the files which are so large. At this time, we need to convert file system of the partition. File system is a system responsible for organizing and allocating file memory space, storing files and protecting and retrieving the stored files. File systems can be classified into FAT, NTFS, ext2, ext3, ext4, HFS, HFS+, etc and every file system has its own features. If the file system is FAT32, we need to convert FAT32 to NTFS in order to store files more than 4 GB, because the maximum file that FAT32 support is 4GB. But the maximum file supported by NTFS is 64GB. Therefore, we should convert FAT32 to NTFS to store files more than 4GB.

NTFS - the best choice

What's the difference between FAT32 and NTFS? Why should we convert FAT32 to NTFS? Is there any benefit? As a matter of fact, compared with FAT32, the significant feature of NTFS is security. NTFS guarantees the security of server or workstation. Meanwhile, NTFS is a restorable file system which possesses self-repairing function, so NTFS partition users hardly run disk repair program. When system failure occurs, NTFS will automatically recover file system consistency with log files and checkpoint information. Moreover, we can set permission authorities for sharing resources, files and folders. In addition, NTFS adopts smaller cluster, which improve disk space management efficiency. It also provides functions like disk compression, data encryption, disk quota, dynamic disk management and so on. Therefore, many users would like to convert FAT32 to NTFS.
