    Hi

    I have got two hard disk on my desktop one of them is called C for OS XP SP3 and other is called D for program files and Data

    Recently whenever I restarted my PC I would have been experiencing the message below

    Code:
    Checking file system on D :
    Type : NTFS
    
    One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended that you continue.
    
    Windows will now check the disk.
    
    CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3)
    File verification completed
    
    CHKDSK is verifying indexes (stage 2 of 3 )
    File verification for completed
    
    CHKDSK is verifying security descriptors (stage 3 of 3 )
    Security descriptors completed
    
    
    After that I could not write the whole message
    
    What could be causing this problem ?

    Thanks

    a faulty harddrive or not correctly shutdown

    does the PC shutdown all OK
    and does it do the checkdisk each time it boots

    are there any errors reported and fixed during the chkdsk process?

    What I did I followed the instructions in the quot below :



    So far so good I restarted the PC three times and chkdsk didn't run on startup

    Let up see how it will go for the next couple of days.

    Thanks
