If you're willing to commit to NTFS, open a DOS prompt (Start/accessories/command prompt and not Start/RUN) and type the following:

 

convert c: /fs:ntfs

 

 

 

Be aware that you can't convert ntfs back to fat32 without a serious amount of fcuking about. It's pretty much a one way process.

FAT32 (because it's so insecure) is easier to salvage files from if the drive/software goes pear-shaped. You can boot off a floppy and move or copy files wherever you like. NTFS doesn't allow you to do this. If you run NTFS and something goes south, it's harder to retrieve your files.... but that's what backups are for. :) You can't do user management without ntfs.
