And on the second step to check indexes it doesn't go past 0 percent.
It takes a long time.
My C: disk is 103 GB and I have 36GB left.
So it's roughly checking 67 GB of space.

Can I just disable CHKDSK to run once a month or once every 2 months, etc?

Does checkdisk run on it's own when you boot up your computer? How do you close the session prior to it running?
Have you defragged recently?
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

You can do anything you want with your system...

If you are asking whether it's wise to disable a fundamental utility of XP/Windows, I would have to suggest that "No!" would be an honest answer.

Perhaps you don't really understand what chkdsk is/does, etc. In that case, you might gain by reading Chkdsk Explained, Understanding What Chkdsk Does - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314835/EN-US/

If chkdsk takes an inordinate amount of time...to complete its functions...it's either because the disk has been damaged in some way or is deteriorating...or proper maintenance has not been performed in some time.


But you are the captain of your ship :thumbsup:.
