I have a 1 tb external HD. I was told needed to be formated from NTFS to FAT32. But in order for me to do that on my external HD i had to delete the default one. Cause its bigger then 32GB and windows xp will not change the format unless you delete the old one. But by doing so i lost some space on my external HD is their a way to get that space back. Please help.

Thanks, Mhrh

As you have found out, you can't create a fat32 partition bigger than 32GB with windows. Delete the partition and recreate it and format it using fat32formatter. It worked perfect for me.
