Windows XP does a better job of handling the hard drive with its Error
Checking program called ckeck disk. This is better than ScanDisk. Access it
by clicking My Computer. Right click the drive you want to check, usually C
drive, then click Properties. Select Tools for Error Checking and Disk
Defragmenter; Disk Cleanup is under the General Button which is how the
screen will open. I would run Disk Cleanup first to remove unwanted files so
Error Checking or Check Disk and Defrag have less work to do.

Greetings --

Start > Run > Cmd > Chkdsk.exe /? for the correct syntax and
available options.

Alternatively, double-click My Computer > right-click the desired
hard drive > Properties > Tools > Error-checking/Check Now. This will
run Chkdsk, normally on the next reboot.

How is it "better than Scandisk"? Given that:
- there is NO interactive mode
- look-don't-touch mode shows spurious errors
- you have to scratch for log files to see what it's done

IMO, ChkDsk is a throwback to DOS 5 days, that's barely fit for use.
