I bought a new 320Gb WD HDD to replace my existing 80Gb drive.
This drive currently contains 2 partitions, respectively 24Gb and 56Gb
in size. Both are FAT-32 partitions.
Of course, both will be larger on the new HDD, but I'd like to take
this opportunity to change the partition type from FAT-32 to NTFS.
For a reason obscure to me, I can't do this using Partition Magic 8.
First, the maximum total FAT-32 partition size it allows on the new
drive is around 190Gb.
Second, the menu item "Convert FAT-32 to NTFS" is grayed..
Any idea why ?
I looked at Acronis True Image, and while it allows to clone the disk
with correct partition sizes, I didn't found how it allow to change the
Any suggestion on how to perform this drive transfer ?
