    Read all about it here:-

    Pay attention to the different ways of doing it -- as it warns you :-

    ""Converting to NTFS Using the Setup Program
    The Setup program makes it easy to convert your partition to the new version of NTFS, even if it used FAT or FAT32 before. This kind of conversion keeps your files intact (unlike formatting a partition).""
