  1. Hi peeps i was running ontrack suite 4 (its like norton but is much easier to use) i just done a check on my system to clean files etc etc...after this was done and i clicked on finish etc and it just gives you the results...and this is what it said,

    "disk fixer found problems with the file system. run chkdsk with the f/(fix) option to correct these"

    So what exactly is this is something on xp itself that i gotto do:confused:

    I use ontrack also it says that it found some errors on the disk so basically it is telling you to do a scan disk...
     
  3. adobo Do u knw where scan disk is...? i am using xp pro i have looked in system tools and cant find scan disk.

    been using fix it for about 2yrs and love it with system 4.0 has a firewall too..pretty cool...and it does not take over your shit like norton does.
     
  7. Hi i have just ran scan disk with nothing found:) but why does ontrack say "disk fixer found problems with the file system. run chkdsk with the f/(fix) option to correct these"
    strange..

    did you run chkdsk/fix if so try sfc/fix from the run cmd...system file checker...
     
  9. Hi adobo i just ran scan disk like right clicking on the c: drive and selecting to restart as when i restart the computer.

    got to start>>>run and type sfc/scannow or chkdsk/fix...if it wont run from the run command typ cmd and go to dos and type the cmds there. good luck

    If you type chkdsk /f in the run box it will run next time XP boots
