    Ok I know the answer but Im asking anyway just in case someone has a trick

    I got my new 2TB hdd today and immediatly started loading it up. then i realised it FAT32 so i can put large things on it.
    Does anyone know a way to change to NFTS without having to format my entire drive? ;p

    EDIT

    Its an external hdd btw

    shrinking partition size to half, taking stuff to other partition, making ntfs partition bigger

    I mean that you shrink the fat32 partition and format the newly freed space ntfs

    what do you mean?
    the partitioning thing?
    In Windows vista/7 you can do it without any other program.
    And in Linux you can use paragon partition manager (I think)
    In Windows XP take Easus Partition manager

    Good to see your problem solved, maybe someone should make a guide on Temp if there isn't one already.
