How Do I Convert My FAT32 File System To NTFS
1/ Click the Start Button
2/ Next click All programs, followed by Accessories
3/ In the Accessories drop down menu select Command Prompt
4/ At the Command Prompt type: Vol C:
5/ You should now see the following information:
Volume in drive C: is XP Home (or whichever version of XP you have)
Volume Serial Number is FF47-80EB (obviously yours will not be the same, but you get the general idea)
7/ Make a note of the Volume in drive details and the Volume serial number.
8/At the Command Prompt type: convert c: /fs:ntfs (Replace the c: with whatever drive letter you are converting)
9/ Press Enter
10/ When asked for the Volume Label for drive C: type XP Home (or XP Pro depending upon your current operating system)
11/ Press Enter
12/ Because you are converting the C: drive (this contains the operating system), a message will appear informing you that the drive cannot be converted. You will then be given the option of scheduling a conversion the next time you boot your machine.
13/ Schedule the conversion and reboot
14/ After rebooting the conversion should proceed as normal.
