Cool Check Disk at Win XP

Hi to everyone. I from Lisbon (Portugal)! Nice forum you have here!
I would like to make one question, please. I’ve a dual boot (Windows XP sp2 and Win Millennium) and when I do my check disk errors in Win XP it takes a lot of time at the surface test! It’s normal to take several hours on it? My HD is a Seagate 120GB 7200rpm and I have the Norton Internet Security 2003 installed!
Tanks for your help! Sorry some English mistakes!

What file system is your drive in? If your file system is FAT, a check disk might take some time...

Yeah...a surface scan takes a lot of time. Esspecially with 120GB. Also with NTFS.

yes, lots of time, but I don't think several hours is normal.
