NTFS Permissions Exercise
Note: This exercise can only be completed if the C: drive has been formatted as NTFS. If C: drive is FAT16 or FAT32, create a new partition using Disk Administrator and format it as NTFS. Alternatively, you can convert an existing FAT partition to NTFS using the convert.exe command12.To use convert.exe, open a command prompt and type convert driveletter: /FS:NTFS. In the same way chkdsk.exe requires exclusive access to the target drive, if it is available for exclusive locking the conversion process will begin immediately. If not, you will be prompted whether or not you would like convert.exe to run on the next reboot and perform the conversion before Windows fully boots.
To demonstrate these principles create a folder in the root of the C: drive named Test, and inside it create a text file named Test file.
