I know I can copy ordinary data files from a FAT32 partition to an NTFS partition, BUT Can I copy an image of my WinXP (NTFS) partition FROM a FAT32 partition on another drive TO a second NTFS partition on the original drive? In other words, the first hard drive has two NTFS partitions - C and E. The second hard drive has several FAT32 partitions. Additional INFO: The first hard drive is on a swappable drive drawer. One drawer is for Win 98, and the other is for Win XP. So, I just shut down and swap drawers when I want to switch operating systems. On both drawers I have two partitions, one with the OS and another (Drive E) for storage. So no drive letters change when I swap the hard-drive drawers. But the file system does. On the Win 98 drawer, both partitions are FAT32. On the Win XP drawer, both partitions are NTFS. The other hard drive (partitions D, F, and G) is for data only and can be accessed from either WinXP or Win98, depending on which is in the computer at the moment. The image I want to copy is now on G (FAT32). I want to copy it to E (NTFS)on the Win XP hard-drive drawer. That image is an image of the C partition on the Win XP hard-drive drawer. I see no reason why I can't do this, but I just want to make sure. If I understand correctly, the file system of the partition imaged doesn't matter.
