If you have important files in the disk...then you should use any Hard disk recovery software...to recover your lost files...the recovery of files is not guaranteed 100%...you can may loose some data.

Convert FAT or FAT32 File system into NTFS


You can increase the performance of your computer using NTFS (New Technology File System) hard drive volume with windows XP, because this advance file system provides some extra features, for example security, reliability, file encryption and Compression features.
But if you are still using old file systems like FAT or FAT32, you can covert it into NTFS with a simple command. The interesting thing is that you can convert your hard drive volumes file system without losing data on the drive. Follow the giving steps to convert FAT or FAT32 partition to NTFS:
  • First go to Start button then click on Run option.
  • Now type here “CMD” and press Ok to open command prompt.
  • At the command prompt type convert drive letter name: /fs:ntfs
  • For example if you want to convert drive E to NTFS then the command will be “convert e: /fs:ntfs”.
  • Now restart your computer and enjoy NTFS features, but keep in mind you cannot covert back it to FAT or FAT32 again.

I AM UNABLE TO SAVE LARGE FILE IN MY TRANSCEND HDD. IGET THE MESSAGE THAT THE FILE IS TOO LARGE. THE FILE I AM TRYING TO SAVE IS MOVIE FILE.


Make sure that the Transcend HDD is formatted using NTFS and not FAT32. FAT32 has a 4G file size limit, and NTFS does not.

Make sure also that you backup any data on the Transcend drive before formatting.

If the Transcend drive is using FAT32, you might also be able to just go to command prompt, and type in:

CONVERT volume( the drive letter of your Transcend drive) /FS:NTFS

You can also get additional help using the CONVERT command by going to a command prompt and typing in:
CONVERT /?

I am trying to update my back up but I get a message the disc is full (although it does not appear to be when I look at its porperties). I am instructed to delete and backup the files again and when I try...


I thing your file system is FAT32.fat 32 can only store file size of maximum of 4GB.change file system to NTFS.

To convert a volume to NTFS from the command prompt
  1. Open Command Prompt. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
  2. In the command prompt window, type: convert drive_letter: /fs:ntfs
For example, typing convert X: /fs:ntfs would format drive X: with the ntfs format.

Conversion of file system


The conversion is actually necessary if you are going to use this device with Windows 7. Windows 7 will not read a FAT32 partition. All drives can be converted to NTFS, just remember the conversion is one way. It cannot be changed back without a complete format.

I have Transcend MP850 8gb, i am not able to convert and play videos in .mtv format. Provided s/w to convert .mtv videos also not working...plz help.


Download the .mtv converter s/w from the Transcend site. This is available for MP820. And download any flv to mpg converter software from google. And also you should download the codec for QuickTime and RealPlayer from the corresponding sites. Since without this codecs we can't convert the mpg to mtv format using the MP820 mtv converter. If you already have the mpg files then you can easily convert that files into .mtv format by using the MP820 mtv converter. Hope this helps. Thank you.
