Disk Error-Checking

Postby eagle1 » Fri Mar 19, 2010 3:52 am

Hey, I have a C: Drive which is 113GB, and currently has 11gb free, It hasnt been disk error checked since i got it which was about 1 year and a half ago.

I'm going to run the scan but does anybody have any idea how long approx will it take?

Like would i be good if i ran it overnight?

Thanks for your time!

I don’t know exactly how much time it takes. It may depend on your processor too. If you have a fast processor the scanning time will be lesser. Also it depends on the number of files. That is even though the total disk space used is same the drive with less number of files will take less time. I think it is better to press the scan button when you are going to sleep and the scanning will be completed while you are sleeping. Then it will be ready to use and you can start working the computer when you wake up.
