Format the partition in Windows to NTFS and then restore the data from your backups.

NTFS is a Microsoft file system so you are more likely to find a Windows tool to do this than a Linux one but I would certainly backup the data then reformat the drive then restore the data as suggested by actionparsnip

install and use gparted to do it...

Can you help with this problem?
