I have been successfully backing up 4 computers on a Windows peer to peer network for almost a year. The computer runiing Restrospect is formatted FAT32. I want to convert that computer to NTFS format. Will it work to reformat the drive in NTFS and then restore the entire disk from the existing backup (done while the drive was formatted as FAT32)? Or do Ineed to discard that backup and start again? I know that I can use the Windows convert command to convert the drive in place, but it would be preferable to reformat the drive in NTFS rather than convert it as long as I can restore everything from my existing backup, but I suspect that the fact that the existing backup is FAT32 worn't work, but I'm not sure.
