Scandisk

Windows 95 and 98 uses a tool called Scandisk to check and repair these types of errors. To run it, type “scandskw” at the Start – Run prompt. In Windows ME, you can find the tool in the system tools folder.

Once you are happy with the configuration, (the default settings are usually fine), click the “OK” button to dismiss the dialog. Select the type of test you wish to perform, select the drive that you would like to perform it on and click “Start”. Scandisk will spend a considerable amount of time checking the disk structure, and report any errors it finds.
