While I know that there is a easier way, this will work:
type cd.. hit return then do it again. It's basically change directory to the one a level above the current one. There is a command to get to the root directory but I can't remember what it is. My DOS skills have degraded since the days of my 286.

After a little digging, cd c:\ will take you to the root directory.
If anyone knows another way, I'd be interested in finding out.

Make backups first, then at a command prompt, type:

convert c: /FS:NTFS /X /V

You can leave the /V off if you don't want verbose mode.
