Lesson:6 Scan Disk

 Scandisk is used to check the integrity of the file system, also to scan the physical hard disk for bad sectors. These bad sectors can lead to data loss or corruption and are one of the first signs of a failing hard disk.

  5. After phase 1 “file system check” has completed click “OK” to finish,
  6. Then start the disk check by ticking  “Scan for and attempt to recover bad sectors.”
  7. Then click “Start”
  8. This is a two phase operation and may take sometime to complete
  9. When complete click “OK” to finish
  10. And “OK” to close Scandisk.
  11. Like Defragmenter, Scandisk should be run on a regular basis to ensure the file system and hard disk are maintained to their optimum.
