I thought that what chkdsk / r was. I will have to run chkdsk ? to see the difference...
Right now I am off to school....
EDIT: Well, I did some research after class and I see that chkdsk / f fixes errors without scanning for bad sectors. The /r switch I knew locates bad sectors and tries to fix them (/r implies /f). Something interesing of note* for Vista. Vista also has a switch /B for re-evaluating bad clusters on a volume.
Mak, a question if you will. My instructor says you should use the /r switch with Check Disk, and in Mikee's case I thought that it might help if he tried it using that switch. I welcome your thoughts on this if you so choose.
Mikee, I apologize. I didn't see that you had tried Check Disk already.
