You cannot change from NTFS to FAT32 without using third party software such as Partition Magic.  You may have run "CONVERT C: /FS:NTFS" to convert to NTFS, but this is typically a ONE WAY conversion (without the use of the third party tools)

? I would not normally reccomend switching from NTFS back to FAT32 as you will loose your ability to secure files and folders.  I presume there is a reason for this?
