    As far as I know that works only fat to ntfs, but not the other way as you want to do. But what is the big deal backing up 48GBs.

    I suggest to take backup first before try anything...
    First take backup and re-format as FAT32. But I wonder why do you want to convert NTFS to FAT32 or should I say "Why do you want to downgrade your hdd file system?"
    Because NTFS has lots of advantages over FAT32.

    I think backup in advance is the safest way.

    You can easily convert NTFS to FAT32 without losing any data and do not have to format the partition.

    Open Command Prompt
    Start | All Programs | Accessories | Command Prompt
    OR
    Start | Run | type "cmd" without quotes | OK
    Type "convert drive letter: /fs:ntfs" and press Enter. For example, type "convert C: /fs:ntfs" (without quotes) if you want to convert drive C.
    If you're asked whether you want to dismount the drive, agree.
