    chkdsk woes

    for some reason that is totally beyond me, chkdsk will not perform scheduled
    disk checks on one of my disk drives.

    I have 2 drives: C: (internal) and J: (external USB) (there are reasons for
    this, I promise). Scheduling a chkdsk on C: works every time. Scheduling one
    on J: never works.

    I booted up in safe mode to avoid J: being opened, and managed to run
    chkdsk. It found a cross linked file, but it does /not/ say what either of
    the files in question was. Which is really unhelpful, because at least one of
    the 2 files will be corrupt at this point, and possibly both of them, and it
    would sort of be nice to know which!

    Forgive my ignorance, as far as I know , Vista does not have chhdsk schedule option. Is it a 3rd party program you downloaded somewhere ? Thank you.
