    Everytime if I want to check error on all the parition in the harddisk,I need to:

    click 'My computer' -> Right click on the disk (C or d or E, F, G, H...), select properties -> Goto the 'Tools' sheet -> Select 'Error-checking' -> Select 'Automatically fix the file system errors'

    but this have so many steps if I need to check all the error on my partition in my harddisk(I have 6 partition!)...

    Is there any faster or command line method to do the above tasks?

    thk a lot.

    chkdsk C: /F
    chkdsk D: /F

    ...and so on from the command line. The /F switch is analogous to selecting the 'Automatically fix the file system errors' box.
