Hi sunzanyili,

As you mentioned that you have already downloaded the application, you can launch it and select the NTFS partition you want to convert. Click Convert to initiate the process.

It is recommended that you connect the hard drive. Open Computer from start menu or the icon present on the desktop. Right click on the drive you want to change the partition for. Select Format > choose the File System you want for the hard drive. In your case, it would be Fat32. Format the drive and the file system will change.

NOTE: Formatting the drive will remove the data stored in it.

Thanks & Regards

There wouldn't be much point in downloading an application that would do a non-destructive convert if the data didn't matter, would there?

@OP - the web page for the software in question gives full and clear instructions for its use. Thus I'm in two minds as to whether this is a genuine query or just Spam. Why do you want to downgrade your disk in the first place?

Windows Disk Manager can do this with wiping the data without downloading anything so I must assume that the program is designed to do this without destroying the data, but read the description and instructions carefully to make sure of this and that you know the proper way to do this.
Second, even if this is designed to do this without destroying the data, any disk operation like this is risky so you should always make sure that you have a back up of this data in case something goes wrong. Additionally, make sure that you know the capacity of the drive to verify that you have chose the correct partition to convert so you do not make a major error here.
Third, make sure you are doing this for the right reason and not some type of misunderstanding. Windows since XP as well as all modern Linux systems can read and write to NTFS. NTFS is a better format and saves the data more efficiently. For these reasons and others, I would recommend explaining why you want to do this conversion so we can confirm that this is a good idea from the beginning.
Finally, it might be safer overall (if you are going to proceed) to transfer the data to another drive, use Windows Disk Manager to format the partition/drive, and just copy the data back (Windows Disk Manager will refuse to format your C drive (the drive Windows is installed on) and tested by Microsoft, among other things).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

My guess is it has something to do with what he put in tags: "xbox 360 PS3"

Don't those consoles format the disks themselves? Or is that the reason you pay twice as much as a standard drive?

I know very little about console gaming but I found the following for external drives, FAT32 for PS3, exFAT for Xbox 360. I believe internal drives self-format like you said.

Just a quick doubt sorry to ask, but fat32 in my experience only support single files of upto 4gb ( correct me if I am wrong), and if op has a larger single file in ntfs partition, (.iso files or archives maybe), will that be handled properly in fat32?

SAIF, you are correct, FAT32 can only handle files up to 4 gig in size.
