Unable to convert hard drive to NTFS
Posted on 2008-10-02
I have a Windows XP laptop and I'm trying to convert my external hard drive from FAT32 to NTFS.
I'm using the command
convert e: /fs:ntfs
It asks me for the volume label and I enter My Book
Then it asks if I want to force a dismount, I say no. I choose to schedule the conversion on the next reboot.
When the system reboots I get a blue screen with the message:
"Cannot determine file system on drive E:"
The system starts up and the dirve has not been converted.
I ran a check disk and it completed ok, but I get the same problem.
Can anyone help with this?
