Okay, I cant run sharing folders with Live Messenger because my files system is not NTFS it is FAT32. Is it a good idea to change it. Would I have any problems?

Thanx..

there are USUALLY no issues that come from converting to NTFS...though there can be some...usually localized file corruption or other strange issues...but MOST of the time converting to NTFS doesn't cause issues

shouldn't...i don't think there's any overhead with regards to speed when using NTFS as apposted to fat...in fact i THINK that it might move slightly faster if anything...

Okay I did it using Command Prompt for both my Partitions. It worked for Drive-D (it says NTFS in My Computer). But for Drive-C it hasnt changed, it still says FAT32. Drive C is my partition with Windows installed. I Converted both on restart and tried doing it to Drive C again, but nothing is helping. I am going to try doing Drive-C one more time.

Thats what I did, and it converted on restart. But when the comp starts up it still says FAT32 for one of the partitions. I've tried doing it several times now it is not working.
