AFAIK, you only ever get this when you're dual-booting with Windows.
"sfc /scannow" is a Windows-only command. If Puppy has been installed frugally in a directory on the same partition as Windows, and detects that the NTFS filesystem has become fragmented, you will get that message at boot-time. You will also get this reminder if you're running Puppy from a USB drive plugged into what is essentially a Windows machine.....especially if you've saved anything to the hard drive. And Windows will also complain if it detects anything on the hard drive that it hasn't put there itself..!
When you install Puppy this way, you only get the option to create a save-file at first shutdown, since the save-file contains a complete Linux file-system inside it. The more recent save-folder won't work on top of an underlying NTFS file-system.
You have to boot into Windows, and run the /scannow command from the shell, as far as I'm aware. Others may be able to confirm or deny this.....the more so since I haven't used Windows for years.
