Changing to NTFS

I have a Freecom external USB drive, which I formatted on installation
to FAT32. In fact I now use it only as home storage, so I'd prefer to
have it as NTFS.

Is there a way of converting it in XP Pro?

Very easy... Open up a command prompt (START,PROGRAMS,ACCESSORIES) and type
this in without quotes:
"convert [drive letter]: /fs:ntfs"

Later!
