i did.. i then rebooted but didnt happen!

  JonnyTub 22:54 07 Oct 04

strange, did you force a dismount?

  JonnyTub 22:55 07 Oct 04


convert c /fs:ntfs


convert c: /fs:ntfs

from a dos prompt. It'll tell you that it can't gain access to the volume and will ask if you want to complete the procedure after you reboot.

note spaces in between commands

All that happens when i put the command in it opens the c: drive explorer which it didnt do on my other computer which i converted..
