using tools from the properties dialog gives pretty much the same thing, including a display of results on completion.

I think a lot of people get thrown by the error msg if they don't uncheck the Automatically Fix File System Errors. They should have it off by default since I have to uncheck that box 99.999999% of the time. Even on an external non system disk if that box is checked it will tell me it can't do anything because the file system is in use blah blah.

The thing is lightning fast for non system disks though. Esp. my external USB 3.0 drives it just zips across in a few seconds. On Vista64 C: it sits at 1/2 way done for like 2 minutes.

Yes it can be worrying. Back in the DOS days they said that chkdsk actually caused the bad sectors. Probably an urban myth!

That's why I always run it with the Fix option disabled to see what happens. Sometimes if the dirty bit gets set on a partition it can be a nightmare to clear it without using a restore point or system image. I hate getting locked in that chkdsk at bootup loop. Royal pita.

They need to sort that out. If it can detect a scheduled run how difficult can it be to check the dirty bit early in the boot. The first time it happened to me was a nightmare.

I'm not sure. I would first try the manufacturer and see if they provide their own diagnostic utility. Just to be safe.
