    I backuped a 4G FAT32 image and want to retore to a 40G hardisk using NTFS.

    I read in the help file that after choosing restore destination I can change restore partition size and File system. But after I choose destination and click next, I only saw default option or menu option screen. the next screen is already the confirmation screen. What did I miss?

    If you click the box next to the drive letter, you restore the entire drive as is. If you choose only the C partition by checking only that box, you will be able to adjust the size of the new partition.

    simoon,

    You can convert FAT16 to FAT32 (or FAT32 to FAT16) when you restore, but you can't convert FAT16 or FAT32 to NTFS.

    Hello simoon,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please notice that jmk94903 and MudCrab are correct. You can change size of a partition and its filesystem (FAT16->FAT32 and Ext2->Ext3 conversions are available) during a partition (not a whole hard drive) restore. Please see chapter 6 "Restoring the backup data" of the respective User's Guide for detailed instructions.
    Please notice that you can convert filesystem from FAT32 to NTFS using Windows tools.

    If you have any further questions concerning Acronis software, please feel free to submit a request for technical support or post any of them on this forum. We will certainly try to help you in resolving any issues.

    Thank you.

    I see, so after I choose "not the drive letter", I retore the partition to the new size and do the convert to NTFS in XP.
    Thank you John, Mudcrab and Marat
