    I am trying to turn my usb drive into a NTFS, so I can push long files (larger than 2 GB if I am not mistaken) into it.

    I read this as the steps:

    1-chkdsk H: /f (I don’t get any errors here)

    2-Convert H: /FS:NTFS

    Here, in this second step, I get this error message:

    “This drive is dirty and cannot be converted. You will need to clear the dirty bit on this drive by running CHKDSK /F or allowing ATOCHK to run on it the next time you reboot”

    But as I mentioned, “chkdsk /f ” tells me everything is okay with my usb drive.

    This USB disk is 500 GB in size and it is filled with many files, but still 200 GB of free space.

    Thanks in advance!
