How to start Scan Disk



Hi Miguel Montano,

       Well, scanning your disk with a NTFS type of drive has the same procedures with scanning your disk with a FAT type of drive. It is also pretty simple and easy to scan the disk too. Here I will show you how to do it. Remember this method applies to both types of drive. Here it is:

1.       Open My Computer either through start button or through double-clicking its icon.

2.       Once open, right-click on the drive letter you want to check disk.

3.       In the pop-up menu, click properties.

4.       Navigate to tools tab, and Click Check now.

5.       Check the boxes of the options you want, then click start.

How to start Scan Disk



Running the Windows scandisk in Windows 7, I think, is the same or has the same procedure when it is done in Windows XP. To check your hard drive for errors using scandisk, follow these:

  • First, launch Windows Explorer either from the desktop or from the Start menu. You can also access and view the drives by double-clicking on Computer or My Computer.
  • Right-click on the drive you wish to check then select Properties.
  • On the window that pops up, select Tools tab.
  • Under Error checking, click on Check Now button.
  • Check Automatically fix file system errors then click on Start to begin the scan.

Wait for it to finish then close the window.
