Hi, I have a 64GB flash drive formatted with exFAT file system, and I need to convert
it to NTFS because my computer cannot recognize the flash drive at all, it tells me
to format it every time when I plug it in. how to convert exFAT to NTFS? Someone
suggests me to convert exFAT to NTFS using CMD, the command is convert E:/ /fs:ntfs.
I tried and got an error message that convert is not available for exFAT drives.
Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
Why The Error Happens?
The reason why you got the error message is that Command Prompt (CMD) is only
available for disk partitions to convert FAT32 to NTFS. That is to say, Command
Prompt doesn’t allow converting a partition from NTFS to FAT32, converting exFAT to
NTFS, or converting RAW to NTFS. Therefore, you will get the message that you can’t
convert exFAT to NTFS using cmd.
Furthermore, you will get the following message when you’re trying to convert NTFS to
FAT32, or convert RAW to NTFS using command prompt.
Convert is not available for NTFS drives;
Convert is not available for RAW drives.
