It's not very often I go into Windows Explorer, but today when I did I noticed a whole list of files with the Windows Icon followed by 0000.chk 0001.chk etc.Can anyone please advise what these files are for. When I clicked on one, I got the box asking what program I wanted to open the file in. Didn't came straight here. Border View 14:11 15 Dec 2003 Thanks for responding - can I delete them or just leave them where they are? Border View 14:14 15 Dec 2003 Thanks for that. Will tick resolved. Taff36 14:15 15 Dec 2003 Yes delete them. They are created when scandisk runs (often after a bad shut down and subsequent restart) and can if I remember correctly be used to "undo" changes made by scandisk if necessary.
