There should be no problem deleting these files but if you are concerned just bung them in a folder (call it chk files) and see how things go for a few days or a week,if no problems then delete them.hth.

Just delete them completely, they are usually the result of an improper shutdown and unless you were working on something vital and irreplaceable at the time it is not worth the bother of even checking them. Deleting them will not affect any programs.

I have never noticed any probs after deleting any

I have (had) my complete music collection on my PC. After a bad shutdown I had 27gb of .chk files. So please do not tell me they were recoverable. I'm not even half way through replacing them.

A bad shutdown followed bt scandisk should not convert any files to chk files! All chk files are, are bits of unsaved data on files open at the time!

I was having other problem at that time, though I still don't really know what happened. A lot of other folders were renamed with their Dos names as well.
