Scan Disk in Vista

Dear Computer Lady:

I have Windows Vista and read in Volume 13, Issue #47 that I should run Scan Disk once in a while. I have never done that!

I can’t find Scan Disk in my list of Programs! How do I proceed?

Very truly yours, Tillie


Dear Tillie,

In both Vista and Windows 7, the tool that used to be called Scan Disk is now called “Error Checking”.

You can access error checking for a drive the following way.

1. Click on “Start” then click on “Computer”.

2. In the Computer window, right click on the drive you want to scan, and click “Properties” in the context menu that appears.

3. In the Drive Properties dialog box, click on the “Tools” tab at the top.

4. The first tool that you can run, is “Error Checking” click the button to get started.
