    How to convert a FAT16 volume or a FAT32 volume to an NTFS file system in
    Windows XP
    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=307881

    Details are in the Troubleshooting section but, basically, it's Windows
    warning you that if you convert a volume from FAT to NTFS whilst some of the
    files on the FAT volume are in use then whoever has those files open will
    lose connection to them. This usually happens when you attempt to convert a
    volume that contains shares which other users / workstations are connecting
    to over a network.
