Windows 7: Convert from NTFS to FAT32 without reformat

Convert from NTFS to FAT32 without reformat

I was just wondering if its possible to convert my NTFS external drive to a fat32 without formatting.

I don't want to have to transfer all my data to my PC, reformatted and transfer it back.

The reasons its has to be fat32 is because i just got a mac which is now my primary PC and mac can only read NTFS and not right.

If its not possible I'm going to have to transfer it all :/
