FAT32 is relatively outdated compared to NTFS and has almost been taken place by high-performance NTFS now. As we all know, the new NTFS has more advantages than FAT32, such as storing an individual file whose capacity is over 4GB. But in some cases, users had better employ FAT32 not NTFS. For example, in DOS operating system, NTFS partition can’t be accessed directly. And, some game consoles only recognize FAT32 partitions.
So, converting NTFS to FAT32 is necessary when users come across the above cases and their file system is NTFS. Next, we show you how to convert NTFS to FAT32 without damaging data.

Converting file system without losing data is not easy, especially for the inexperienced users. Usually, there are two ways to achieve this goal. The first one is to transfer data to another location, then format the drive with the FAT32 file system and finally move the data back.
