A typical section explains how to convert a FAT or FAT32 file system to NTFS--that's the sort of thing you'd find in any Windows 2000 book. However, the authors of this book call the reader's attention to a little-known switch (which you can invoke when running the conversion program) that resolves many filename problems.
