Can someone refresh my memory as to how I get into the 5 stage chkdsk.
I can access the 3 stage one OK.

If the /R switch is in effect, Chkdsk runs two more passes to look for bad sectors. During stage 4, Chkdsk verifies all clusters in use; during stage 5, Chkdsk verifies unused clusters. Note that this process can be quite lengthy. taking many hours.
