NTFS Conversion Procedure...Works Great!

Recommended Posts

Hello...NTFS WORKS GREAT!!!!I just converted all my partitions from FAT32 to NTFS this weekend. I have noticed a performance increase in FS2K2 since doing the conversion!Also, I have noticed a performance increase overall in Windows XP Pro since doing the conversion.Now, many people recommend NOT doing the conversion, but first backing up ALL data first, then re-formatting your HD. HOWEVER, THIS DOES NOT HAVE TO BE DONE, if you use the procedure below!If you use the following procedure, converting to NTFS is NO different from converting while setting up Windows XP and formatting your drives then.The key is, you need to force the Master File Table to be ONE - unfragmented file. This is the procedure that can be used to accomplish the NTFS conversion, without fragmenting the MFT. Here is the procedure as outlined in the book: "WindowsXP, Inside & Out", by the Microsoft Press:To improve your system
