chkdsk

Hi folks,
if I run chkdsk /f /r, after the reboot
can I be sure that bad clusters are
'marked' so that Windows XP will not
use those ones in the future?
Or I need a thirdy parts program?
Thank you for replies, Massimo.

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.


CHKDSK [volume[[path]filename]]] [/F] [/V] [/R] [/X] [/I] [/C] [/L[:size]]

volume Specifies the drive letter (followed by a colon),
mount point, or volume name.
filename FAT/FAT32 only: Specifies the files to check for
fragmentation
..
/F Fixes errors on the disk.
/V On FAT/FAT32: Displays the full path and name of every
file
on the disk.
On NTFS: Displays cleanup messages if any.
/R Locates bad sectors and recovers readable information
(implies /F).
/L:size NTFS only: Changes the log file size to the specified
number
of kilobytes. If size is not specified, displays current
size.
/X Forces the volume to dismount first if necessary.
All opened handles to the volume would then be invalid
(implies /F).
/I NTFS only: Performs a less vigorous check of index
entries.
/C NTFS only: Skips checking of cycles within the folder
structure.

The /I or /C switch reduces the amount of time required to run Chkdsk by
skipping certain checks of the volume.

Thank you, but what does it mean "Fixes errors on the disk"?
The OS will not use the bad clusters in future?

They won't be used. But this is a VERY good time to shop for a new hard
disk.

Run chkdsk from the command prompt. If bad sectors shows up. Go
and purchase a new hard drive and use the one with the bad sectors
as little as possible. Run the harddrive diagnostic utility, if it
is still under warranty it can be replaced.
