Is there any tools to convert FAT32 drive back to FAT16?

Is there any tools to  convert FAT32 drive back to FAT16?
1 Solution
Once you convert your hard drive to FAT32 format using Drive Converter, you cannot return to using the FAT16 format unless you repartition and reformat the FAT32 drive. If you converted the drive on which Windows 98 is installed, then you must reinstall Windows 98 after repartitioning the drive. (That is straight from Microsoft)

That is to say that you cannot do this with Windows 98.  There is a third party Program called Partition Magic which allows you to do this though. You can take a look at the Web Site for this product at http://www.powerquest.com/partitionmagic/index.html
