I am about to run Partition Magic and it says before running the program to back up the hard disc [done] and run a file check. That is the part I don't quite understand; how to run a file check?

Hiya

Could this mean Scandisk? Never used Partioning software myself.

I am was running on a drive repartitioned with partition magic. I don't quite remember all the detail when I repartitioned the drive, but everything was pretty much automated. the program menus can be quite unclear.

Anyways you should probably run scandisk and possibly a surface scan, but I would believe that PM would automatically check for errors before it did anything anyways.

But it sounds like it is telling you to run scandisk first.

They are talking about Scan disk. You will find it in Start\programs\
accessories\system tools\disk defragmentor. Yoy do not have to run the surface scan if your harddrive is fairly new.
