"Access denied you do not have sufficient privileges.__You have to invoke this utility running in elevated mode."

I get the error:

"Access denied you do not have sufficient privileges.
You have to invoke this utility running in elevated mode."

when I'm trying to convert my FAT32 external hard disk into NTFS using commad prompt.

I am the only user on this computer and I am the admin. How do I give myself more privileges in order to do the conversion right?

And if I can't, how can I convert the hard disk to NTFS without having to delete or move my files?
