    Just got into a wonderfull world of linux. And to my dissapointment LINUX still doesn't support writting to NTFS volumes.
    So now I would like a way to change my 20GB NTFS partition into a FAT32 without loosing data. As I understand ACRONIS doesn't support this feature.
    What else could I do?

    Hello ashrack,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Partition and Disk Managing Software.

    You can try the following workaround using Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0:

    - Create Acronis Bootable Rescue Media using Tools->Bootable Media Builder option;
    - Boot from that media;
    - Create a new small FAT32 partition;
    - Merge NTFS partition to that FAT32 partition.

    Please also take a look at this thread. It describes the procedure in more details.

    If you have any further questions please feel free to ask.

    Thank you.
