Check Disk

  alpalok 10:30 29 Nov 05

I check for the options:

a. Automatically fix file system errors
b. Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.

What I wanted to know is how do I know how many bad sectors have been detected by chkdsk and where all are they located? Is there a way to find out how much percentage of my HDD is damaged due to bad sectors?

Whether your computer restarted with an error while you are away or you scheduled an automated check disk upon startup, you might not get enough time to examine startup chkdsk results. The good news is that Windows NT® saves this information in the Event Log.

Click Start, point to Programs, Administrative Tools, and then click Event Viewer.

In the Event Viewer window, on the main menu, click Log, and then click Application.

Scroll through the events until you see an event with Autochk as the Source.

Double-click the event to view the results of previous startup check disk operations.
