Need to Convert Unallocated Space to NTFS Partition

"I have 3 hard drives, C: Windows 7 installed, E: NTFS extra storage and F: NTFS extra storage & two unallocated partitions. Currently F: has a total capacity of 280GB of which 200GB is formatted to NTFS, and the remaining is unallocated with no data on this hard drive. I'd like to reallocate the space and make F: drive 100% NTFS drive. Is there a simple way to do this?"

It's easy to find a solution to meet such a demand as the user posted on sevenforums.com, and the typical way to change the unallocated partition to NTFS or other file systems like exFAT, FAT32, EXT2 and EXT3 is to assign a drive letter and the desired file system.
