If you are using win NT then goto command prompt and type convert, you'll see options there. here I think it looks like this convert x: /fs:ntfs where x is the drive you want to convert. Sorry I'm not on NT at the moment, so you might have to work out the command yourself.

boom23, Your command is correct.

It's just that I've been asked this question about 50 times and each time the word "convert" is in the question. This ammuses me but maybe I have a wierd sense of humour!
