I reinstalled windows on a new computer in Jan, helped by Dell tech who installed the drivers, and at my request partitioned one 500gb hard drive into C: c 100gb, and F: with 400gb. I also have a 2nd hard drive, partitioned into D:, 200gb and G: 100gb.
Somewhere in the spring I had to install an image of C:, made in March.
Some time after this the boot process began to include a chkdsk - (that always gives a good report). I ran chkdsk /f manually and no problem was found.
I can't see that any harm is being done, but it does raise a question about the drive.
Just recently I had a (?) virus that made Outlook Express unworkable, plus some other minor problems; so I just reintstalled windows on C:. The chkdsk problem has persisted.
