You can't use scandisk in 2000. It isn't DOS-based.

Instead, go to Start > Run, and type:

chkdsk /f

You will be asked if you want to run the check on the next boot.

You can optionally specify the drive or partition:

chkdsk C: /f

or you can open my computer, right click on the c: drive/properties/tools/error checking and it will tell you it can't do it but will on the next startup.
