Scanning the partition!

After making a few Philosophical posts, lets come back to some Computer Maintenance Tips!
So today we are discussing about Scandisk(As for Win98/Me) or you may call it Checkdisk(For WinNt and based). It is a special feature of Windows and a powerful tool to help you get rid of one of the most irritating problem - Slowing down of your PC or you may say, dieing performance! I know sometimes its too astonishing to know that, "What? I get a powerful tool pre-installed in Windows? In Microsoft Windows? Are you sure man?! You must be kidding, right?!" LOL! But its true and I ain't kidding! :p
This feature displays the file system integrity status of hard disks and floppy disk and can fix logical file system errors. yes, it fixes errors on its own! Hurray! :D Since Win98/Me have almost died off, and more than 99% Windows users use WinXP or WinVista or Win7, so let me tell you the advantage of their Checkdisc. Their Checkdisc feature can also check the disk surface for physical errors or bad sectors. Amazing, isn't it? Though in NT based Windows versions Checkdisc was to be run from Windows Shell, but since these new Operating Systems are having user-friendly environments so we can do it from our My Computer very simply! :D
