Yes, if you reformat your disk you will lose all the data that is on it. There could be a program to convert the filesystem, but I am not sure and I would not trust it without a backup. You could copy your files to your main disk, reformat and then copy the files back. Another option is to create a CD, if you have a burner.
I would use NTFS over Fat32 is compatibility is not an issue.

Question: Can I create and name one folder on my external hard drive, put all of my files into this one new folder, then transfer that folder to my internal hard drive while I reformat the external??? Then just transfer that same folder back to the external hard drive once the reformatting is completed????
Also: Exactly how do you reformat a hard drive?
