Having run a Disk clone I am advised to run a chkdsk in Windows7. Fine in XP but how do I do it in Windows ?

Click the Windows Orb (Start) > All Programs > Accessories and right-click Command Prompt, then ‘Run as Administrator’. Type chkdsk /r (note the space) and press Enter.

It will run next time you boot the system.
