Just installed a new hard drive. How often should I check the disc for errors. Or should I wait for problems first?
XP Home Edition. Thanks

Only need run a check if the computer's restarted itself or if it's been turned off without being shut down properly as system files may become corrupted, however Windows will normally do this for you.

One thing you should schedule however is a monthly or quarterly defragment depending on how much you use your computer.
