you can only do that in windows converting FAT32 to NTFS (google the terminal command), in linux you will lose the data.


I see. I already know that you can do that in Windows, I am jut wondering if you can do the same with Linux. Thanks

NTFS is - as you know - a proprietary closed source filesystem.

The GNU ntfs driver is a reverse engineered driver and it does not support everything available on Windows.

Just to mention something: Repairing filesystem errors - permissions - converting filesystem - probably resizing too - is features not working with the GNU driver
