HOW DO I CONVERT DRIVE D FROM FAT 32 TO THE NEW NTFS FILE? I WENT TO THE COMMAND PROMPT IN WINDOWS X P AND TYPED IN CONVERT C: /FS:NTFS. AND WHEN I DID IT ASKED ME FOR THE VOLUME OF DISC D. HOW CAN I FIND OUT WHAT THE VOLUME IS FOR D ON MY COMPUTER? BILLY [email protected].

The volume is the name of the drive as it shows up in My Computer . . usually is blank.

If there is no data on the drive that you want to keep . . . go to Disk Management . . right click on the drive and select format . . it should then give you a choice of fat or ntfs.

To convert a volume to NTFS from the command prompt
Open Command Prompt.
In the command prompt window, type
convert drive_letter: /fs:ntfs

For example, typing convert D: /fs:ntfs would format drive D: with the ntfs format.
