Posted by Admin to RAW to NTFS on April 27th, 2015

I recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate OS. While starting Windows I am getting CHKDSK D Drive. Even in my computer also, when Ii want to use drive D, it is preventing saying :" Disk D Drive is not accessible. the drive or directory is corrupted and unreadable" I performed chekdsk by using command prompt, it also shows disk is not readable. When I go to disk management to know the type of file system shows file system of Drive D is of type RAW. I searched in internet says that it is better to convert RAW to NTFS. I know there is command line convert FAT to NTFS, is there RAW to NTFS convert command line?

The answer is NO. RAW file system is not really a type of file system but presents a problem of your drive or partition. We know file system often used like NTFS/NTFS5, FAT16/FAT32.
