I know chkdsk is supposed to create a log file, but I can't find it or
any "Scandisk" log, either. Where are they?
Thanks.

Go to Start > Run and type: eventvwr.msc /s , and hit enter.
When Event Viewer opens, click on "Application", then scroll
down to "Winlogon" and double-click on it. This is the log
created after running Checkdisk.

As a matter of interest, how is a user supposed to *smell* that ChkDsk
will hide its log under "Application", "Winlogon"?
