We used to put non-readable characters in for volume name to stop it from being formatted. What is normally means is you are being requested to enter the volume name prior to this task.

Read the volume label, if you can't get it to work then you will have to ntbackup to another spot and format it ntfs and then replace files.

convert e: /fs:ntfs
as in

convert e:[space]/fs:ntfs

I believe convert is seeing e:/fs as one thing

Concerning f: you would before the convert command do label to get the answer to give concerning the volumn label.

What exactly are e: and f: Some devices don't take kindly to being converted

go to e: and then f:

at each type "label" with no quotes
it will then give you the choice of changing the label.
Do so to something short and easy.

You are right the e:/fs: doesn't matter. Clearly MS updated the commands to work either way.

"F:\>convert f:/fs:nfts"

A typo in that.
No such thing as NFTS.

F:\>convert f:/fs:ntfs

Might be mounted and have files open. Boot to safe mode and try again.
