    Hello Jeremy,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Disk Director Suite (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/diskdirector/).

    Acronis Disk Director Suite 9.0 doesn't allow you to convert NTFS into FAT32 and vice versa. Currently we are not planning to implement this feature.

    Thank you.

    On 2 Dec 2004 the Acronis Team published the following:
    "Thank you for your interest in Acronis Disk Director Suite (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/diskdirector/).

    I just want to confirm that the current version of Acronis Disk Director Suite doesn't have function to convert FAT32 -> NTFS. However, this function is already included into our Enhancement List and also our developers will try to implement NTFS -> FAT32 convertion operation in future versions of Acronis Disk Director Suite.

    Thank you"

    Today 7 Mar 2005

    So I guess that between 2 Dec 2004 an today 7 Mar 2005, the acronis team abandoned the idea of the including the conversion funcdtions in Disk Director Suite. I would wonder why when so many of the users seem to want this feature?
