Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you need to support a larger partition size, or you need more granular permissions you’ll want NTFS.

To convert the disk use the convert command line tool.

<pre>CONVERT D: /FS:NTFS </pre>

    Note that it won't be possible to convert it back to FAT after the conversion to NTFS. It is recommended to backup important data before perfoming the convertsion in case something goes wrong.
