Why do you want to convert to FAT32?

Be aware that there is an element of risk in all such conversions so you should have a backup of all important files before proceeding. Of course you should have a backup in any case.

First of all I would state that if you are using the external drive to store the ONLY copy of files you are running the risk of losing those files.

You should always maintain at least two copies of any data you want to keep.

If you have the data in a second location then you can proceed with the conversion. However, it is better to simply delete the partition/s and recreate them and then format using FAT32.

You may need to use a third party utility to format the partitions using FAT32. The drive manufacturer has such a utility.

I assume you want to use the drive across platforms?

Use ntbackup with system state to remote media, Load new copy of OS on drive and then apply restore.

There is a link in response #1 telling you how.

If you don't have any important files the best method is to use the utility from the hard drive manufacturer to prep the drive by deleting all partitions. Then making new ones, then formatting using FAT32. Then re-install your operating system.

FAT32 is not good to use with large hard drives so I am asking you why you want to do that?

If you are trying to format a drive larger than 32 Gbs from within Windows you cannot, you wont get the FAT32 option. You need third party utilities to format drives larger than 32 Gbs.

Unless you have an overriding reason to use Fat32 would stick with NTFS

You seem to be changing your question as the thread progresses. It would be far clearer if you asked different questions in separate threads and provided feedback as to whether your problem has been solved.

Windows Vista and later will not run on FAT32 partitions. The OS partition must be formatted as NTFS. If NTFS file system burden is too much for your system, then you can reduce it by the following method:

Create a blank text file and copy the following into it. The file name can be anything. Let us say ntfs.txt.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem]
"NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation"=dword:00000001
"NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate"=dword:00000001

Then rename the file extension to .reg, such as ntfs.reg. Now you can double-click ntfs.reg file to merge it into registry. This reg file reduces the burden that is peculiar to ntfs file system. You must have administrator privileges to merge the reg file into registry.

Furthermore, you will do better by increasing your RAM to over 2 GB.

EDIT: Sorry I now realize that you have Windows XP that can run on FAT32 file system. But the above method is also correct for Win XP on NTFS partition. You can try it.
