Projects

The following two projects will walk you through using the CHKDSK and SCANDISK utilities. These utilities are very important in analyzing hard drives and determining whether there might be a problem. CHKDSK can be used on uncompressed drives, whereas SCANDISK is required to check compressed drives.

Analyzing a Disk with CHKDSK

The external command CHKDSK analyzes a floppy or hard disk. CHKDSK checks a disk's FAT, directories, and—if you want—the fragmentation of the files on the disk.
