    Hi all,
    I have a 500 GB hard disk which is by default frmatted in FAT32 file system. It is now around 400 GB filled up. I have some files which are more than 4GB size which are not supported in FAT32 file system. Hence I need to create a new drive with NTFS file system. But I don't want to loose the 400GB filled up data. Any solution?
    Thanks in advance

    I don't know in Disk Management in XP there is an option to shrink the drive.....Disk Director by Acronis could do it.
