Recently I reformatted my HDD and installed WinXp prof. All is well bu the problem is that whenever there is a bad shutdown , the scandisk/chkdsk does not start automatically at next bootup. Can anybody plz guide how do I enable that?
maybe there is a reason why microsoft does not require you to run scandisk on your disk everytime you suffer a bad restart or shutdown?ntfs is an advancement over fat32. and it has a good reputation for stability and safety.
^ AFAIK , scandisk is not a part of windows XP .instead XP has advanced check Disk ....when rebooting after a bad shut down , it would be best to manually run check disk (my computer --> Disk --> properties --> tools --> check disk) to correct the problems, if any .On other community forums , I have read that aperson lost huge data after a bad shutdown onwindows XP ...
^ it is not a must to run check disk after each & every
bad shutdown . if you remember that many programs were
running at the time of bad shutdown , then it is better to check
the disk after the reboot . or make it a habit to check the disks
once in a week / 10 days / fortnight .
