How to Convert FAT to NTFS?

Note: This solution will not affect any data stored in the partition while converting but I advice you to have a backup. And after you convert to NTFS, you cannot convert back to FAT.

Go to Command prompt (Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt)
Type the following in the command prompt
Convert x: /fs:ntfs
Where ‘X’ represents the drive which you want to covert.

In case if you want to convert the partition that is currently in use, you will not be able to convert and you can schedule the task when you restart the computer. This may be the scenario if you are trying to the convert the partition where your Windows is located.
