# Linux – Convert FAT32 to NTFS without loss data

fat32filesystemslinuxntfs

I have an external USB hard disk (300GB) in FAT32. The question is how can I convert the type FAT32 to NTFS without loss my data. I have 250 GB of data stored in my disk.

I was trying to do that in windows with Acronis and the native command windows convert, but neither can do. I think maybe was for the big size of data.

I hope someone can guide me a little.

1. Boot windows (e.g. use someones computer) and use convert Driveletter: /fs:ntfs. (See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307881 for more details).
