You can run chkdsk on any drive from the command prompt (if the disk will allow it).
To do this, go to Start...Run...and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter
In the black window that opens up type "chkdsk X: /r" (without the quotes) and press Enter
There must be a space between the chkdsk and the X:, and there must be a space between the X: and the /r
Replace the X with the letter of the drive that you want to check (leave the colon there).
If it won't run there, then there's a problem with the disk that Check Disk can't fix.
