I am using Win XP SP2, 2xHDD(each into two partitions). One of the partions on 2nd HDD is in FAT32 and I am trying to convert it to NTFS using info from previous threads. However when I go in using RUN, CMD, Convert e: /FS:NTFS, it starts converting but then comes up with "error converting file KEN'SE~2.TIB", the conversion failed. I have tried to search for this file including looking in system & hidden files and folders but with no success. Can anyone help please?
The File extension .TIB is associated with Acronis True Image, which leads me to conclude MichelleC was right in her assumption that this is a hidden restore partition
If this is so, are you sure you wish to convert it to NTFS as this will serve no useful purpose, and may indeed leave you unable to restore your PC to a workable condition in the event of a future failure.
If you are sure you want to do this, and assuming you have backed up any data you want from the partition, go to disk management, and from there format the partition, and after that run the convert tool to convert it to NTFS.
Sorry for delay in picking up responses but have been out. I have an old copy of Acronis True Image (Version 6)on the computer which i am going to remove and install version 9. If when I remove Ver. 6 would I then be able to convert my one Fat32 partition to NTFS without having to format the drive. I do know that you can use NTFS on smaller drives as the other 3 partitions are all NTFS. Advice please?
