you mean the percentage doesn't go up at all when checking the drive? i get something like this on my D drive, scans fast then slows to a crawl and then doesn't even looks like anything is happening, after about 5 mins it finishes.

From what i have been reading its an issue with the way vista handles the mft on the drives, more files you have on a drive the more problematic it is

Is chkdsk a native Vista app?

I thought development stopped in the Win2k days?
chkdsk is for vista also

you mean the percentage doesn't go up at all when checking the drive?
it just stops, it stays examining free space at 61 percent and won't continue

I tried rebooting and doing it again it hangs on the same free space tag
