Hello Tutti, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm sorry, but your screenshot link does not work for me. Could you upload and post the screenshot here as a jpg file instead?

You might also run chkdsk on the HDD to check for errors.

Hello Peire,

A CRC error usually indicates that you have a bad sector on the HDD. I would recommend to backup anything on the HDD that you do not want to lose to another location first just to be safe. Afterwards, you could run a chkdsk /F /R command to try and fix, recover, or mark the bad sector.

When finished running chkdsk, see if you may be able to now convert the HDD to NTFS. If not, then you may need to format it as NTFS instead, and copy the backup of the HDD back to the HDD afterwards.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Following the instructions here, I got all the way through the conversion of an external "My Book" 465 GB drive, but instead of getting a "Conversion complete" message, I got "Data error (cyclic redundancy check)". A spot check of the data showed no problem and the free and used space figures were identical to the before condition. Was the conversion a success?

Sorry, I just read the earlier response to Peire about the CRC. I'll follow that guidance.
