Scandisc running on XP-pro

  electroplater 19:37 19 Dec 2006

I am running XP Pro with the NFTS file system.Occasionaly on boot up scandisc runs and reports several faults such as
'Deleting corrupt attribute list entry for file record 3320'
I have run a hard disc diagnostic tool with no adverse report.
The reported faults are different each time.
Scandisc runs at varying time intervals, days or weeks.
The system has not crashed or failed to shut down.
Any ideas?

Just a suggestion but make sure you have a backup and be prepared to replace the drive.

Also have you run the diagnostics tool from the manufacturer of the drive rather than a generic tool?

Try going to Start/Run and type chkdsk /f (watch the space) you should get a cmd prompt telling you it's busy and would you like to run on startup, click Y and reboot.
