For example, I can now use permissions to control access to this file for specific users. Now before we end, there's one other thing I need to show you. And that is the fact that the convert command worksin one direction only. Meaning that it will convert a FAT32 file system to NTFS but it will not convert NTFS back to FAT32. So if I were to run this command again and change the file system from NTFS to FAT32 and hit Enter. It says ah can't do it. Sorry convert will only change FAT32 to NTFS. Summary 9:59-10:10 That's it for this demonstration. In this demo, we talked about formatting and converting volumes.We first learned how to use the format command to format volumes from the command line. We then learned how to use the convert command, to convert a FAT32 volume to an NTFS volume. The following table describes various disk and volume statuses that you might encounter in Disk Management: Status Description Healthy or Online The Healthy or Online status indicates that the disk is turned on and can be accessed. The volume on the disk is valid and has no errors. Formatting The Formatting status is shown for volumes during the formatting process. After formatting, the status for the volume changes to Healthy. Unallocated The Unallocated status shows for portions of a disk that have not been assigned to a partition or a volume. Initializing The Initializing process shows while a disk is being converted from a basic disk to a dynamic disk. After the conversion, the status for the volume changes to Healthy. No Media The No Media status shows for an optical or removable media drive that does not contain a valid disc. This disk status only applies to CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, or removable disks. Foreign A Foreign disk is a dynamic disk that was created in one system and moved to another system. When you first add the disk to a different system, the partition information for the disk must be updated to reflect all dynamic disks in the

current system. Import the disk to make it available in the new system. Not Initialized Unknown The Not Initialized or Unknown status indicates a disk without a valid master boot record or partition table (either missing or corrupt). To correct the problem, initialize the disk. If the partition table is invalid, use third party tools to try to recover the partition table. Online (Errors) The Online (Errors) status indicates that I/O errors have been detected on a dynamic disk. To correct the problem, try reactivating the disk. Unavailable The Unavailable status indicates that errors have occurred on physical or dynamic disks. Unreadable The Unreadable status indicates a hardware failure, I/O errors, or other corruption but might also be caused by a delay in reading the disk in Disk Management. Try rescanning the disk to see if the status changes; if not, troubleshoot the hardware or disk problem.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
