Scandisk on Windows XP

Scandisk is not available from the run menu from Windows XP as it was in previous version of Windows. This utility is used to scan computer system disks to find errors and attempt to correct them, if you so indicate. To scan your hard disk for errors in XP do the following:
1. Click on Start and then My Computer.
2. Right click on disk you wish to scan and then click on properities.
3. Click on Tools tab at top of window.
4. Click on Check Now in the Error Checking section.
5. Click on boxes to automatically fix file system erros and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.

Don't forget about starting a command prompt and running: chkdsk /f
