        Thanks for the info. Wasnt sure why it wasnt checking for errors but now its back on I am happy.

        I usually just had to run chkdsk /r to get it to fix errors on restart.

          Well i ran checkdisk, and things don't seem to be quite so 'choppy' now. It took ages though.

              ext3 is a journaling file system. Journalling simply means that the file system keeps track of all changes made and changes that should be made in a special table called the journal, the journal is written to the harddisk frequently, so when harddisk crash or power outage happens, the file system can go back and finish what needs to be done or undo what needs to be undone. Its self cleaning and self checking.

                  Flak- you should run the manufacturer's dianotsics disk for your brand of hard drive. If there are critcal problems/bad sectors/SMART failures it will tell you.
                  If you know what brand your HDD is let me know and Ill point ya in the direction of the diag disk download link.

                        Thanks Peter. I haven't had any bad sectors though since I've cleaned up my system. I've got a lean mean gaming machine now. ^^

                          Unless you're doing a lot of programming, and creating tons of files all the time, yeah, every other day is excessive.. Even then, once a week would do.

                              Exactly what I was thinking -- how can so many knowledgable people not know they have to nursemaid this poor excuse for an OS...?
