Convert RAW to FAT32 NTFS

Users That Need to Convert RAW to FAT32 or NTFS and Solutions

1. I have a 2GB flash drive that its file system was FAT32 before, but now it is RAW. When I insert this flash drive to my computer, it can be detected by my computer but its capacity has only 8MB. How can I convert the RAW to its original file system FAT32? By the way, I have many important data inside the flash drive; can I reuse the data after converting RAW to FAT32?

Solution: Usually you can convert RAW to FAT32 by formatting or some converting tools. If you still want to reuse the data inside the flash drive, you should perform data recovery before converting.

2. How to convert RAW file system to NTFS? My computer hard disk becomes RAW file system and asks me to format the disk. The file system of hard disk was NTFS, so I want to know how I can convert RAW file system to NTFS.
Solution: You can right click on the RAW disk and format it to NTFS. But you should know data will be erased after formatting, so you should recover data first before you formatting the hard disk.
