My friend has a 4.3GB HDD (Seagate) and is currently partitioned
as 2.1GB and 2.1GB ie drives C and D. Win 95 is on drive c.
Recently he downloaded the FAT16 to FAt32 converter ie CVT.ee from the net.
when he runs the program the heading says that the drive will not be accessible from
DOS or any older versions of windows. Now what does this mean?? Can he go ahead and nvert from FAT16 to 32 using this software without any problems? ANd if so, will running the program on C or D drives prevent their access from the main program...Please answer. Thank you.

There should be no problem with the installation - the warning is for individuals using Windows 3.1, WFW, OS@, etc. Also, if he has any old DOS games or programs - they would not run on the FAT32...
