Open Help and Support and type in "Chkdsk." This will give you a run down for using XP's drive error checking utility. Scandisk is not used on NT based systems. Read the Help and Support Documents and it will tell you how to thoroughly check your disks for errors using Chkdsk.

You can open Windows Explorer, right click on the drive you want to check for errors and select "properties." In that window select Tools> Error Checking. You can run Chkdsk with different options there. It won't be able to perform a complete analysis of the drive you are operating on until it reboots. However, it can perform full analyses on all unmounted partitions. Hope that helps.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
