Greetings -


Since CHKDSK cannot scan the system partition (and other partitions under certain circumstances) from within Windows, you're given the option to run it at the next boot. All good. The font/display size used by CHKDSK under these circumstances prevents you from viewing all the data at once, however.


This isn't a huge issue, and certainly not a functional one. The first two lines are the ones usually lopped off/scrolled out of view. It *would* be convenient to see those lines though, particularly which drive is being scanned. I often run CHKDSK overnight, and can't tell from the display which drive it's working on.


Any ideas how to make the font smaller or the display area larger? Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
