This is strange. I run the command convert C: /FS:NTFS /V and it goes through the whole process as if it works. In fact I had thought it was done until I noticed today that it was still Fat 32. I did this a second time with the same result.
This is an Acer Aspire 1690 and I just installed a new hard drive and recovered the image from the old drive to the new one. I am wondering if I also need to convert the small service partition to NTFS before this will work. If so do I have to do them in any order. Google searches found nothing similar to this.
I have the log of the conversion from winlogon in event viewer and it looks as if everything went fine. I could post it if needed. It's my bosses laptop so would there be any sensitive information in that log? It seems to mostly be file names but I see some stuff that may be some kind of data.
