My OS is Windows ME. My system has two hard drives:
Primary: C:\ 20 gigs. Secondary or slave: D:\ 6 Gigs.
When I shutdowwn I use the start button and "Shutdown"
The "Safe to turn off Computer" message appears and the computer shuts down properly.
The problem appears when I restart the computer.
A "Scandisk window pops up stating that because the compputer was not shut down properly the "D" drive must be scanned.
I have let the "D" drive go throug the complete scan. I still get the Scandisk window the next time I restart the Computer.
What can I do to eliminate this error mesage?

Hi jltbo, welcome to TSG....

Is there an operating system on the 'D' drive?

There is an old Windows folder, however, the folder name has been changed to "OLD WINDOWS". Could this be the problem?

Thanks, JLTBO.
