XP's scandisk with the option" fix errors and recover bad sectors" ticked ,stops at 25% of step 1 after rebooting,does nothing for about 2 minites gives up and continues to desk top. Any ideas how I can get past this,there is no description of what the scan stopped at like in Win 98 if you did a scan during boot up so it is not very helpful at all. SP1 has been applied and has worked fine for about a month and the computer works fine during operation. Shutdowns a problem now ,it either hangs after the saving settings bit or it reboots it self to have another go at the scandisk ,it starts to scan at every bootup as well. Any suggestion around fixing this short of a reistall would be appieciated.
