Disk checking

annies boy68 here again. When my computer starts up it insists upon checking my external hard drive. Is there anyway I can disable this please

  anniesboy68 16:17 16 Jan 2006

Yes, I always let it complete. It will not stop although it says press any key, but to no avail. It happens every time hence my request to disable it and run it when I wish to.

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
