stylehurst.....Thanks for that. However, when I proceed, and whichever way I try, I get the following message......"CHKNTFS is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file"
Stylehurst...eqskey....Thanks for that. However, despite my comments in an earlier posting [19.52 Monday] something has materialised out of the poking about with the command prompt. For the last four bootups the problem seems to have vanished, i.e. its a normal boot up with no checking of the external drive!!!!. So far!!. Will post if it changes. AB68
