You can't convert NTFS to FAT32 without losing data in Linux but you can convert NTFS to Ext4 without losing data:

I actually would have thought in Windows it would have to be FAT32 to NTFS - never known a journaling partition/drive to be able to convert the other way.

Thank you for that good information, it's good to know that: I can convert NTFS to EXT4 without losing data with GParted.
for converting NTFS to Fat32 without losing data, I can use windows for that with live iso without dual-boot Windows/Linux . and I think I can use these tools for any windows app I must need, so no need to wine or Virtualbox. (Hirens BootCD)

(I have used that software) but should not be promoted as it is deemed illegal as it uses a non-certified (CoA) version of Windows 10! Mentioning it on other forums leads to bans!

That may just be rumor:

Well on my local city forum it is not allowed, period!

There is "better safe than sorry" to consider. I do not know if it is fully legal or not. It's just you know me... I try to fact check as often as possible. :grin:

I think it is fully legal. it's not using as operating system,all apps in it is legal and free ,not cracking. it's like clonezella, systemrescuecd,etc.
