conversion to ntfs not working

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.hardware (More info?)

I would like to convert from FAT 32 to NTFS and I tried my command prompt and
the conversion would not work after the system restart the reason: saying
insufficient memory. Is there another way to convert without losing any
files? thank you

    Run disk cleanup, then a full chkdsk surface scan. Make
    sure you have backups of critical data since there can be
    problems (I have never had any with the conversion of the
    handful of computers I have converted).
    How much RAM do you have and how is your pagefile set?

    How much free space do you have on the drive, you may need
    to uninstall some applications or data files and reinstall
    afterward.

    I already ran disk clean up, my file system is at FAT 32, my hard drive size
    is 186 GB with 148 GB free space, and my memory is 256 mb
