Have you thought of trying Norton Disk Doctor? It is more comprehensive than Scandisk. Another option might be to find a copy of Spinrite, which is the most comprehensive for finding and fixing non hardware disk errors. I use a combination of these three and Ontrack's/V-Com's hard drive analysis programs. I only mention all of these programs because I have found that when I run into this kind of problem, one of these progs will catch and fix the error when another cannot. No one single program ALWAYS works in my experience. Spinrite is the only one, I believe, that can correct mis marked sectors--sectors that have been marked incorrectly as bad (or good). It can also retrieve data from a bad sector. -- good luck, d On Sun, 2003-08-24 at 09:34, M.Thakur wrote: > I am using Win 98 FE with 2 HDD of 40 GB & 4 GB.
