    Question Changing to Fat32 after install and viewing mac HDD from windows?
    Hi all!

    Is it possible to change the windows partition to FAT32 from NTFS after having installed windows? I installed it as NTFS but now wishing I'd done FAT32 as I'd like to modify files on that partition from OSX. I would reinstall windows but I've already installed loads on my windows partition.

    Also! Does anyone know of a way of viewing the mac partition from windows?

    All the best

    You can't convert formats after you have already put files on them

    And the only way to access the Mac partition is through a program like MacDrive
