....and it also lets you convert between NTFS & FAT32.
Don't do any conversion unless the partition is at least 25% free because some file system converters apparently need quite a bit more room than a calculation of the amount of slack will indicate. I really don't like converting a partition without first backing at least that partition onto another hard drive.

The other thing to consider is that I believe FAT32 has a 4.xx gigabyte file size limit. Only important is you have any large files (high quality movies, ISO images, etc).
I'm unsure what the conversion process would do when it hits a large file like that, but I bet dollars to donuts it won't be pretty.

Why are you trying to convert it to FAT32? For OS X compatibility?

Its possible to convert Fat32 To NTFS without losing data by cmd convert command but i think vice versa is also possible.
volume Specifies the drive letter (followed by a colon), mount point, or volume name. /FS:NTFS Specifies that the volume will be converted to NTFS. /V Specifies that Convert will be run in verbose mode. /CvtArea:filename Specifies a contiguous file in the root directory that will be the place holder for NTFS system files. /NoSecurity Specifies that the security settings on the converted files and directories allow access by all users. /X Forces the volume to dismount first if necessary. All open handles to the volume will not be valid.
