Its 160GB WD Passport Essential currently formatted on FAT32. I want to format it to NTFS so that I can copy files greater than 4GB on it.

I want to use the d-mailer sync software pre-installed on it afterwards and is afraid that by copying it on my laptop (before formatting the external HDD to NTFS) and then again on extrenal Passport drive, this software will cease to work due to license issues.

Can someone from WD answer to my issue?
