convert e: /fs:ntfs
The volume may have inconsistencies. Run Chkdsk, the disk checking utility.
The conversion failed.
E: was not converted to NTFS
After running chkdsk, this is what chkdsk displays:
The type of the file system is FAT32.
Volume EXTERNAL created 12/19/2008 11:23 PM
Volume Serial Number is xxxx-xxxx
Windows is verifying files and folders...
File and folder verification is complete.
488,264,736 KB total disk space.
415,040 KB in 657 hidden files.
160,224 KB in 4,949 folders.
39,684,832 KB in 76,052 files.
448,004,608 KB are available.
32,768 bytes in each allocation unit.
15,258,273 total allocation units on disk.
14,000,144 allocation units available on disk.
What am I supposed to tell from this information? How can I fix this so that I can convert from FAT32 to NTFS (and if possible, still without formatting)?
