i had the same problem, so i used partition magic 8.0 to make a ntfs partiton and , waalaaa , problem solved.

it really easy and comes in handy.
i got a 80 gig hd, with 3 partitons.
one for os and everything(fat32x), one for mp3's(fat32) and one (ntfs) for extracting large files.

but partiton magic isnt free. you have to *cough* get it legally.....yah legal get my drift.

Do this:

Click Start>> Run


convert c: /fs:ntfs

It will convert your C: drive to NTFS. Do the same if you have other partitions/physical HDD's. Only works on NT, 2K and XP. Sorry 98 users.
