3. Run sudo fsck -fy /dev/<device name of partition> to check the file system for inconsistencies and repair them if possible. If issues were found, run again.
4. Run sudo btrfs-convert --uuid copy /dev/<device name of partition> to convert the file system to Btrfs. If no errors occurred, the file system should be Btrfs now.
