How do you format a hard drive from fat32 to NTFS.  And I would assume this can only be done on an empty hard drive?

Hi reotwo1,
Formatting will erase all data on a drive. You can change a drive from FAT32 to NTFS without losing data though. Back up all data first. http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/winxppro/maintain/convertfat.mspx
Should fill in the rest
