Why is my HDD checking for consistency occasionally at startup?
you mean scandisk ?
yup, scandisk tells me that I need to check one of my HDD for consistency, i've made all thorough checks plus checked with the maxto powerdiagnostics tool. and it says it's ok. actually the tool "recertifies". any ideas?
well , for example after a crash with manually restart scandisk checks your drives
yeah but nothing happens, I simply shut down and next morning it gives pops a blue screen with that message" on e of you hdd's needs to be checked for consistency"
Is your WIndows XP boot partition FAT32 or NTFS?
If its FAT32 try converting to NTFS. NTFS is less prone to errors and rarely has to scandisk
To convert, Start->Run "convert x: /fs:ntfs" where x: is the letter of the drive to convert
thanks for replies, my drives were formatted NTFS.....:-(
