Note the MAIN 2 alterations between /r and /f when run with the Manual Mode and not DOS method
Run a Disk Check on your C: drive in Windows XP:
•Click Start and open My Computer
•Right-click on C: (or your hard drive letter) and select Properties
•Click on the Tools tab
•Under Error-checking click the Check Now... button
NOW - For /r you Checkmark both boxes, but for /f you only Checkmark the first box (already checked)
•Mark the 2 boxes next to Automatically fix file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors
•Click on the Start button
•When the message box pops up, click the Schedule disk check button and Restart your computer
•Once your computer restarts it will check the drive, don't press any keys so that it is allowed to do so
This will take (on average) 1 to 2 hours depending on your system, so please let it finish.
DO NOT force a reboot once started a you will lose data and may damage the computer
NOTE - If this is a Laptop please plug it into a reliable power source, as batteries may fail.
The computer will reboot to normal mode once it has completed all => 5 stages -
NOTE - 5 stages in /r and 3 stages in /f

when you say "Manual Mode", this is different than dos prompt?
By DOS Prompt I mean if you type into Run Box or Command Prompt box.
oh, and by the way, one of the boxes was not automatically check marked.
Normally 1 box is ticked, but any playing / resetting may "upset the norm"
Note : As written I say to allow for 1 to 2 hours.
As we do not kow the computer size / the free space / installed programs / etc / etc .............
