Safe to delete .chk files?

  The Potter 22:35 18 Dec 2010

This ties in with my other post but the answer might be useful to other folk, hence my starting a new thread.

Have just run WinDirStat and it seems that recovered file fragments (.chk it says) is using up 22.4gb of a 40gb drive. Can they be deleted?

Many thanks

Without opening the tower up, is there some software that will tell me who the manufacturer is? I've got PC Wizard and all that says is

Hard Disk : ST340014A (40 GB)

That would be a Seagate Barracuda drive.

I ran with the first 4 levels of the Seagate disk checker and no probs. Right now that's enough for me so I'll mark the thread as solved.

OOps! Forgot to mention ... I deleted all the .chk files and everything OK. :)
