exFAT Converter: How to Convert exFAT to NTFS/FAT/FAT32

Written by Brithny on Jan 02, 2018

Is exFAT to NTFS/FAT32 Converter Software Available? How to Convert exFAT to NTFS or FAT32 in Windows 10/8/7? Are you looking for a piece of free partition software that comes with a simple solution for you to convert exFAT to NTFS file system on an external hard disk drive or USB flash drive? Since using cmd is somewhat higher level for ordinary users to change the file system, a third-party exFAT to NTFS converter software becomes significantly necessary.

Bad news is that there is a lot of format utility that supports to directly convert FAT16/FAT32 to NTFS directly without losing data, however, we found no exFAT to NTFS converter software available so far, even EaseUS Partition Master does not support the direct change from exFAT to NTFS on an HDD, USB drive or memory card.

Usually, to change file system from exFAT to NTFS or other file systems like FAT, FAT32 in order to make the drive readable & usable by some specific devices that only recognize NTFS file system, the following two methods you can have a try.

Solution 1. Format exFAT to NTFS/FAT/FAT32 Using CMD

Step 1. If it's a removable disk like a USB drive, plug it in the USB slot on your PC.
Step 2. Open the command prompt.
Step 3. Copy any one of the following commands to format the exFAT drive to FAT, FAT32 or NTFS.

format G: /fs:FAT
format G: /fs:FAT32
format G: /fs:NTFS

convert exfat to ntfs using cmd

Step 4. Press Y=Yes or N=No to proceed or stop the formatting.

Solution 2. Format exFAT to NTFS/FAT/FAT32 Using Windows Disk Management

First, you need to delete the exFAT partition off from your drive and then create a new NTFS/FAT/FAT32 volume.

To make it happen, let's open Disk Management by right-clicking This PC in Windows 10 or My Computer in Windows 8/7, select Manage. Disk Management resides under the Storage section.

Step 1. Right-click on the exFAT partition and choose Delete Volume.

Step 2. Right-click again on the unallocated partition and choose New Simple Volume.

Step 3. Follow the wizard to create a new partition and assign the volume as an NTFS/FAT/FAT32partition.

To fully manage the NTFS drive partition, you can try EaseUS Partition Master Free. For example, resize partition, move partition, merge partitions, format FAT16/FAT32/EXT2/EXT3 partition, etc.

  • It won't hot image your drives or align them, but since it's coupled with a partition manager, it allows you do perform many tasks at once, instead of just cloning drives. You can move partitions around, resize them, defragment, and more, along with the other tools you'd expect from a cloning tool.
