The Reason for FAT to NTFS Conversion
As we all know, FAT is one of the file systems of disks and it can be directly accessed under the DOS system. Both FAT32 and FAT16 belong to FAT, but FAT32 compared with FAT16 has more advantages. If a FAT32 partition is less than 8GB, the size of each cluster is fixed to 4KB. In this way, compared with FAT16, FAT32 can greatly reduce the waste of disk and raise the disk utilization. However, FAT doesn’t support hard disk defragmentation or over 4GB single files. So far, FAT has been gradually replaced by NTFS whose performance is better. So, FAT to NTFS conversion is needed now.
