I need to change the filesystem of a secondary partition from FAT32 to NTFS..

There are files on the FAT32 drive that can't really be backed up efficiently But i'd like to convert the drive to NTFS.

Does WIN2K come with any utility to convert the drive without formatting it, or do I have to use 3rd party software to make this happen?

"convert" is a command line tool that comes with Win2k/XP that will convert a FAT/FAT32 filesystem to NTFS.

eg. "convert D: /FS:NTFS"
