RAW File System to NTFS
I am unable to access my Windows partition. after spending hours I finally figured out it must have something to do with the partition. Windows propertites show 0 Bytes for this partition. diskpart and list volume is showing this drive is formatted as
RAW file system not NTFS. When I accessed it, Windows pops up a message "The drive is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?"
Can someone help me figure out how to
change RAW to NTFS without formatting and losing my data?
