You need to change to NTFS. You can do this with a command line:

From: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/pro...onvertfat.mspx


To convert a volume to NTFS from the command prompt
1.
 Open Command Prompt. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.

2.
 In the command prompt window, type: convert drive_letter: /fs:ntfs


For example, typing convert D: /fs:ntfs would format drive D: with the ntfs format. You can convert FAT or FAT32 volumes to NTFS with this command.

Important Once you convert a drive or partition to NTFS, you cannot simply convert it back to FAT or FAT32. You will need to reformat the drive or partition which will erase all data, including programs and personal files, on the partition.

It doesn't mention it here, but you have to reboot in order for the conversion to happen.

The virtual server can only run on NTFS. This is an issue with IIS.
