Whenever I start or restart my computer it wants to run scandisk on just
one of the hard disk partitions. It does this all the time. I have let
it run and I have canceled it out all to no avail. I am running Win XP
Pro + SP2.

Hi,

Open up a command prompt window (Start/Run CMD) and type the following and substitute VOLUME with
the volume label on which CheckDisk runs on every boot:

CHKNTFS /X VOLUME

for example, if your C: drive is checked at every bootup, you would like to type:

CHKNTFS /X C:

Hope this helps.

I tried this, it worked for one drive but not for the other. chkntfs
says that the 'f' drive is 'dirty', whatever that means.

Tried to find a fix for the dirty bit and found no fix. Found lot's of
others with the same problem. Tried all fixes and none worked. I backed up
my drive and reformatted it and have not had any problems. My dirty bit got
set when I canceled out of chkdsk and it locked up.
