ScanDisk is a Windows utility used to check your hard disk for errors and to correct problems that are found. These errors often occur when Windows locks up and must be restarted.

To run ScanDisk in Windows 95 and NT, click the Start button, select Programs, then Accessories, then System Tools, and then Scandisk. It is recommended that you run ScanDisk at least once per month. In OSR2 (a later release of Windows 95) and in Windows 98, ScanDisk is initiated for you automatically following system restarts in which shutdown was not complete.
