Convert FAT to NTFS command (CMD)

Written by Leif Stenfeldt. Posted in Dos, Tips, Windows 8

Windows OS supports the conversion of a FAT volume to a NTFS volume without deleting the files on the drive. We can do this using the command convert. You can find syntax below.

convert drivename /FS:NTFS 

Example: To convert E: drive from FAT to NTFS, we can run the below command.

convert E: /FS:NTFS

Adding /X switch forces the command to unmount the volume if required.
