DO NOT run *Verify, *Checkmap or any other low level disc commands from
a TaskWindow. These commands do not multi-task properly in a task window
and can lock the machine until they have completed.

Also they will report spurious disc corruption if anything else wrote to
the disc when the were running. Always use the single tasking F12 prompt
at the bottom of the screen for these commands.

I should point out that DiscKnight does run in it's own multitasking window, and if you perform a check with other software running that may write to the disc (automatic email downloads in particular), it will report spurious errors. So please make sure nothing else is running before use, perform a reboot if necessary.

That is also critical when doing a repair, so please read the guide provided, before use.
