You can do it with this software but backup everything on your external drive first because nothing is perfect.

The other way is to backup your external drive. Delete the NTFS partition and then create a partition formatted as FAT32. You can do this with Windows 7 disk managment.

If you do convert your drive to FAT32, be forewarned that you will have issues storing files larger then 4gigs.
