Convert LARGE to LBA

I set up my hard disk to LARGE in the bios  - it's an i430VX triton m/b. I should have set it up as LBA.

Is there a way to convert without losing all my data - or having to back it all up?

Depending on the Bios, LBA can also be named "Large Disk Access" or "Translation". They all do the same thing (prevent data over 528MB to loop back and overwrite existing data). I think that if you set your Bios to "Large" it should be ok. If you have both options and want to set it to LBA though, I don't believe you can do this without reformatting your drive.
