How to perform a Scan Disk in windows

Posted by Mezo | Saturday, December 06, 2008

Hi, This is how to you can perform a scan disk in windows XP and Vista. It scans your hard disk for any errors. So it helps to run it monthly and if you notice your PC slowing down or making some unexplained errors

1- Go to Start menu > Run. (remember you have to be logged in as administrator)
2- Type in: "cmd"
3- A black MS-DOS window will appear, type this if you want to check drive C:
"chkdsk c: /f"
4-A message will appear asking if you want to perform the scan the next time you restart your PC, type "Y" and then hit Enter.

The Scan will be performed the next time you restart your PC.

I hope that helped :)
