Check Text ( C-73351r1_chk )
Open "Computer Management".

Select "Disk Management" under "Storage".

For each local volume, if the file system does not indicate "NTFS", this is a finding.

"ReFS" (resilient file system) is also acceptable and would not be a finding.

This does not apply to system partitions such the Recovery and EFI System Partition.
