Fat 32 to NTFS problems


Recommended Posts

I have been having problems downloading files over 4gb and getting the not enough disk space error message. I have followed the convert F:FS/:NTFS route and the message i get is "Acess denied you do not have sufficient privlages you have to invoke this utility running in an elevated mode"

which means what?

Im running Vista with only me on the account and set as an administrator so what am i doing wrong?

Err, perhaps you need to run as Administrator in Vista?

BTW, your usage is incorrect: It would be convert f: /fs:ntfs

Converts FAT volumes to NTFS.

CONVERT volume /FS:NTFS [/V] [/CvtArea:filename] [/NoSecurity] [/X]

volume Specifies the drive letter (followed by a colon),

mount point, or volume name.

/FS:NTFS Specifies that the volume is to be converted to NTFS.

/V Specifies that Convert should be run in verbose mode.


Specifies a contiguous file in the root directory to be

the place holder for NTFS system files.

/NoSecurity Specifies the converted files and directories security

settings to be accessible by everyone.

/X Forces the volume to dismount first if necessary.

All opened handles to the volume would then be invalid.
