How to convert FAT to NTFS file system?

Many computer users are perhaps adopting FAT32 file system. Compared with the previous file systems, FAT32 has many advantages, such as higher disk use ratio, supporting the maximum partition of 2TB, and supporting the maximum individual file of 4GB. Although it has these advantages, its disadvantages can not be offset. After the partition files are deleted, FAT is unable to integrate the data into a complete segment when new data is written. After long term use, the data will be scattered and the read-write speed slows down. This is the main disadvantage of FAT32. Besides, FAT32 is not in support of single file which is larger than 4GB. Compared with FAT32, the new file system NTFS which is restorable has more advantages. Because of its restorability, we seldom run disk repair program. In addition, the file encryption greatly improves data security. And its disk compression function improves disk use ratio. It is obvious that NTFS is superior to FAT file system. However, it is difficult to convert FAT to NTFS file system because the disk management tool built in operating system can not make it. We need to back up partition data when we use the third party partition magic to convert FAT to NTFS file system because there may be data losses when we use them. Nevertheless, the partition magic MiniTool Partition Wizard published by MiniTool Solution Ltd. can help us convert FAT to NTFS file system without data loss.
