Cancel an NTFS conversion


When you issue the convert driveltr:
/FS:NTFS
command, at the next boot, the FAT partition specified will
be converted to NTFS. Windows NT knows to perform the action by checking the
BootExecute key at boot time. The key’s normal contents:

autocheck autochk *

is replaced by

autoconv \DosDevices\driveltr:
/FS:NTFS

To stop the conversion, use this NT registry hack to set the key to its
normal string value.

Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

Key: SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session
Manager

Name: BootExecute
Type: REG_MULTI_SZ
Value: autocheck autochk * normal setting
