    Chkdsk does the job scandisk did on previous os's, why would you want it? As far as i no microsoft doesn't have a version for xp.

    Oh yes,

    There is a "full suite" for XP............you just launch it differently? I am beginning to think that M$ screwed up on the revenue / service front? there is a lot better private software out there?

    chkdisk started out as the original, crappy program. It told you various bits of information about the disk, and did some minor error checking. Then scandisk came along. It was an actual disk utility, with XP, scandisk was renamed chkdisk.

    OK...................In the beginning, there was DOS............it had a "rudimentary" disk checking system.........................then with Windoze3 came something a bit better...........then came scandisk (Win95)........Win NT4 still had the old chkdisk?................XP has as system that is similar to the Win98/XP scandisk, but because it is part of the previously divergent "commercial OSes".........it has now gone back to "chkdsk"

    just a quick insight

    EDIT: Before you ask:yes..............err California.................

    You know
