    Check Disk

    Check Disk has run twice automatically at Windows 7, 64 bit start up. That hasn't happend within the whole year I've run Win7. It runs and then closes, the only text I caught was: 0 bad file records processed.

    Should I be concerened?

    Only if you have not been shutting down correctly. You could alsoopen a command prompt in admin mode by typing cmd in start box and right clicking the command prompt shortcut that shows and choose run as administrator. Once command window opens type "sfc/scannow" (no quotes) press enter and let it check for system file errors which it will try to repair.

    All typing errors are my own work and subject to patents pending. Except errors by the spell checker. And that has its own patients.

    Be sure to put a space between sfc and /scannow.
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    Gloria,

    This sounds like a partition that has been set as "dirty," thus triggering the chkdsk; I've forgotten exactly how to fix this (the "dirty" bit - sounds like Tracey Ullman - is supposed to be cleared by chkdsk), but there is a way - perhaps you could Google Fsutil: dirty, and see if that helps.

    Belarc reports my disk as Healthy. I won't worry about it anymore, unless it keeps happening (which it hasn't for a week).

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I've run that command recently, the results showed only small stuff, nothing major or even close.

    Also thanks to Jerry.
