Chkddsk Through the Command Line

#
Step 1

Sign onto your computer as an administrator. You need to have administrative rights in order to run the Windows Vista Chkdsk utility.
#
Step 2

Navigate to the Windows Vista Chkdsk utility through the command line via the "Start" menu. From the "All Programs" menu click on "Accessories." Select the "Run" menu item which will open a text box in which you will type the instructions for running Chkdsk.
#
Step 3

Type "cmd" in the Run textbox and click "OK." Doing so will open a DOS Window.
#
Step 4

Insert "chkdsk c:\ "at the flashing prompt to begin the Chkdsk utility. Replace "c:\" with the letter of the drive for which you want to run the Chkdsk utility. If your hard drive is "d:\", then type that instead.
#
Step 5

After the "chkdsk c:\" command insert "\f" to fix errors on the disc volume or "\r" to recover bad sectors. For more Chkdsk DOS commands visit the Microsoft website.
