4 GB is a hard limit of FAT32. The only way to extract it is to change the hard drive to NTFS.

You can convert it using the convert command like this:
convert e: /fs:ntfs
Where e: is whatever the drive letter of your drive in question is.

you will not lose any data if you convert your drive to NTFS


Fat32 does not support 48bit LBA sooner or later when the file system gets confused it will overwrite the partitions and that will be a sweet mess.

It wont harm your files. I have done this procedure on so many machines I have lost track. It has worked every time, so far.

Oh maaaaaaaan

I started conversion tool with the option to do it when my pc will boot again

It had done the Check Disk and then determined the free space.

It Restarted.

Done again the Check Disk and free space determination, showed me my KBs and started with conversion.

BUT, it said that my C:\Docum~ (or something like that including the Docum~) was or damaged or insuffient parameter! and then Conversion Failed.

Why ? :thumbsup:

Could be malware, could be corrupt files, start with this: [start}[run] cmd enter chkdsk C: /f, it should prompt to run on reboot to fix any problems that it finds, once this is done, restart the machine and re try the conversion. Post the results, please.

Folders i assume. It has only general directory (eg C:\Docum~1) when conversion fails but chkdsk finds nothing, with every parameter checked :thumbsup:

Try this if cleaning out all the junk doesnot work the only thing left would be to backup all your files and re format the drive in ntfs, then you would have to re load all the programs and files, which is a lot of work
