MBR may get corrupted due to improper system shutdown, viruses etc., which leads to hard drive crash.
  • Re-partitioning the hard drive: While conversion of file system from FAT to NTFS you need to re-partition the hard drive. If the process of conversion is interrupted in between due to power surge or other reasons, can result in hard drive crash and huge data loss.
