Acer Aspire 5100-3959 restores with FAT32 file system

The Acer Aspire that I bought came with two partitions. One for the operating system and the other one for your data.

I recently restored my system and Acer’s restore disk converted the C: partition to FAT32. To convert it to NTFS, open a command prompt (under Start Menu, Acessories) and type the following command:

> convert c: /fs:ntfs

The type of the file system is FAT32.
Enter current volume label for drive C: ACER
Convert cannot run because the volume is in use by another
process.  Convert may run if this volume is dismounted first.
ALL OPENED HANDLES TO THIS VOLUME WOULD THEN BE INVALID.
Would you like to force a dismount on this volume? (Y/N) n
Convert cannot gain exclusive access to the C: drive,
so it cannot convert it now.  Would you like to
schedule it to be converted the next time the
system restarts (Y/N)? y
The conversion will take place automatically the next time the
system restarts.

Now reboot the system and it will convert the drive auomatically at the next boot.
