    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.
