Why Windows Cannot Format NTFS to FAT32?

FAT32 (File Allocation Table 32) is an older file system that is compatible with a wider range of devices, such as digital cameras and game consoles. FAT32 has a maximum file size limit of 4GB and a maximum volume size limit of 2TB.

Possible Causes for Windows FAT32 Format Failure Using Disk Management or Diskpart:

  • The storage media usb/sd/hdd has write protection that cannot be formatted
  • There are OS data on the drive, ie the c drive fat32 cannot be changed when Windows is running
  • The drive has possible errors or logical damages
  • The disk is dying

When you try to format an NTFS partition to FAT32 using Windows built-in tool, it will not allow you to do so because the operation requires erasing all the data on the partition. Additionally, the NTFS file system has features that are not supported by FAT32, so converting from NTFS to FAT32 may result in data loss or corruption.

There are third-party tools available that can convert from NTFS to FAT32, but these tools should be used with caution and only after creating a backup of your data.
