Question Interpreting CHKDSK results...help...

Due to too many "random shutdowns" I reinstalled Win XP Pro (clean install, formating the C drive). Ran into some problems with the installation...after the 3rd try it is now stable.


Right after the last install, I ran a CHKDSK from the XP CD "recovery console"and it said:

"1 or more errors found on volume". But no details about the erros, just free space & allocation units on disk...

Is my hard drive bad??


Thanks again!
Ben.

run it with the fix errors switch, that way it will rix the errors rather than just reporting them ;-)

I think its chkdsk /r
