For a certain reason, I need to run my 500GB hard disk in FAT32, but strangely you may think, Microsoft has imposed a restriction on Windows 7 (think this applies to XP and Vista). Hard disk that is more than 32GB couldn’t be format into FAT32.
Here is a method to how to get your hard disk to be in FAT32.
- Press Win+R to open Run dialog box then type cmd
- type format /FS:FAT32 O:
I’m using drive O as for my external drive, so just replace the letter with the one for your drive. That’s all.
Just take note that FAT32 doesn’t support single file that is more than 4GB.
Another thing to take note is the quick format doesn’t support for large drive. So undergo the full format for huge drive is really hell slow.
