Okay so, I have a 1TB external HDD to which the caddy failed out due to something I did so I'm now using for internal storage.

I'm not sure how or why Samsung decided a FAT32 partition on a 1TB HDD was a good idea, but it's 76% full and I can't back it up anywhere.

I wish to somehow convert the file system on this hard drive from FAT32 to exFAT, or if I really have to, NTFS.

Is there any way of doing this?

That site says it's possible. It was the first hit on a google search for fat32 to ntfs without data loss. Repeat the search for more hits.

Do I trust it? No. The rest it up to you.
