FAT is outdated compared to NTFS and has almost been taken place by high-performance NTFS now.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 FAT, such as storing the large and simple file whose capacity is over 4GB. But in some cases, users had better employ FAT not NTFS. For example, the file capacity isn’t over 4GB or users employ the DOS operating system, because NTFS partition can’t be accessed directly from DOS.
So, converting NTFS to FAT is necessary when users come across the above cases and their file system is NTFS. However, achieving file system conversion without losing data is not so easy, especially for the inexperienced users. If users want to convert NTFS to FAT safely, they must back up data before executing the operation, but many users always don’t get used to doing this.
