Exclamation changing non dos partition to fat32 partition

How can I change a non dos partition to a fat32 partition without loosing any data. I tried to use pq magic 8.0 but I cannot change it with that program. Normally you can change any partion format from one to anouther with pq but I cannot with this one.

You might not be able to. Consider just backing up the data and formatting the drive as fat32. The manual way is slow, but it works
