Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

As I try to convert my IOMEGA hard drive from FAT32 to NTFS, using Windows XP's CONVERT command, it discovers a drty bit on the drive. However, when I test it with CHKDSK, Windows finds no problems at all. How should I proceed? Thanks. Julian


Answers :

Does anyone you know have a copy of any sort of disk management tool such as acronis disk director or norton ghost?

If yes, you can copy all the info that you still want to keep with the disk management software, and then do a total wipe and format.

MS convert will not do a complete job under normal circumstances (at least in my experience), so you are better off using a third party software suite.
