Hi ... It means your computer want to check with a scan on your f drive for bad sector / errors , At which time it will try to correct , So if I was you ? Scan your f drive with the errors checking option , Then afterwards try the defrag ... To do a error scan ? Do the following >>> double click My Computer >> Right click the F drive and select properties , Click on the Tools tab follow by check now

It want you to run CHKDSK. The /F switch instructs CHKDSK to repair error.

Start> Run> chkdsk /F <enter>

Make sure there is a space before /F.

The f is unrelated to the drive name. The f stands for fix. Read the this microsoft article about chkdsk, what it does and the different syntax codes. I agree that the system is wanting to check your drive for repairs. To do this, restart the computer and chkdsk should run on its own. If it doesn't, click on start, then run. Type in command. In the screen that comes up type in chkdsk /f if you only have one volume, which is the usual case. Make sure to include the space. You will likely get a message asking if you want chkdsk (stands for check disk) to run when the computer starts up again. Type yes or click on yes. (You must be logged on as an administrator in order to do this). Then restart the computer. It will take quite some time for it to finish doing its job. Please be patient.

Turn off your computer by using the case switch. Then turn it back on, Windows should preform checkdist automatically.

If you are using the Windows XP defragmenter then this article will more than likely do the job
