Converting to NTFS

When running the command 'convert c: /fs:ntfs' from the command prompt I get
a message that reads- 'convert' is not recognized as an internal or external
command, operable program or batch file. Can anyone tell me what that means?

Actually I am not converting the C drive. I was using that as an example. I
am however, attempting to convert another drive that is FAT32. The message "
'convert' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable
program or batch file" is what I do not understand.

your path is not set properly, or the convert.exe file is missing. It
should be in \windows\system32.

before you convert a fat32 to ntfs, read this, paying attention to the
"align/slide partition" caution:

if all your partitions were created w/ the XP Setup program (or XP's Disk
Manager) you're ok, but if you made 'em w/ FDISK then you MAY need to
slide the partition first.
