    Hi all,
    I am looking for a way to run the CONVERT C: /FS:NTFS silently. I have looked on the Microsoft Knowledge Base and searched google, but I have not been able to find any way to do this. I have tried:


    C:\>convert c:
    Must specify a file system

    C:\>convert c: /fs:ntfs /y
    Invalid Parameter - /y

    C:\>convert c: /fs:ntfs -y
    Invalid Parameter - -y

    C:\>convert c: /fs:ntfs -s
    Invalid Parameter - -s

    C:\>convert c: /fs:ntfs /s
    Invalid Parameter - /s

    C:\>convert c: /fs:ntfs /noask
    Invalid Parameter - /noask

    C:\>convert c: /fs:ntfs -noask
    Invalid Parameter - -noask

    C:\>convert c: /fs:ntfs /silent
    Invalid Parameter - /silent

    C:\>convert c: /fs:ntfs -silent
    Invalid Parameter - -silent

    C:\>convert c: /fs:ntfs /yes
    Invalid Parameter - /yes

    C:\>convert c: /fs:ntfs -yes
    Invalid Parameter - -yes

    C:\>convert c: /fs:ntfs /sure
    Invalid Parameter - /sure

    C:\>convert c: /fs:ntfs -sure
    Invalid Parameter - -sure

    If anyone has any ideas it would much appreciated.

    well, if it prompts for a yes, then you could always do it like this...

    ECHO y| convert /whatever

    that should work.
