  1. Go to a command prompt and enter the following command

    CONVERT [Driver Letter]: /FS:NTFS

    Insert your drive letter like this "CONVERT C: /FS:NTFS"
  2. All you have to do is format it as NTFS unless it's your boot drive with Windos on it already.

    You could refomated to NTFS, right-click "My computer"->"management"->"storage"->"disk management"
    and then right-click the partition you want to format, follow the wizard to complete the operation.

    If there's some important data that you want be formated, you could use the command line:
    click "start"->"run"->type "cmd" then it will pop-up the dos window. Then type the command line as "JasonAkkerman" mentioned.
  4. Using the convert application will preserve the data on the drive.
