Windows 7: Convert FAT or FAT32 Volume to NTFS

64-bit Windows 10 Pro

Hello Windy,

Usually you would want a USB flash drive to be FAT32, but it doesn't matter for a password reset disk. The main thing is to make sure that you have your BIOS set to enable USB devices at boot (usually is by default) so it will be able to detect the password reset disk while connected at boot if you should ever need to use it.
