Is there any way to convert the Windows and Linux partitions to FAT32 without reformatting them? Because my Windows partition is NTFS, yes; and my Linux partition is Ext2--well, one of the Ext types, anyway.
Fat32 could be used as a data drive, but don't use it for your regular linux partitions. The filesystem doesnt' support the permissions that linux uses. Reducing the size of the NTFS window's partition and creating a new Fat32 partition in the space may be a better way to go.
