Hello Sabitexs, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, you could use step 2 in the tutorial below to convert drive to NTFS in a command prompt at boot without losing anything. Be sure that you are using the correct drive letter. They are not always the same at boot as they are in Windows.

Convert FAT or FAT32 Volume to NTFS

Hope this helps,
Shawn
