    Hello.

    I cant seem to convert a WD400 from fat32 to NTFS. I tried "convert e:
    /fs:ntfs" where e: is the drive i want. It gives the message "The type of
    the file system is RAW. CONVERT is not available for RAW drives." I'm
    running Win2k server.

    I did that and found out that I have a bad FAT.
    Looks like my drive is trashed, oh well.
