Shouldn't be necessary to do boot-time chkdsk of an external drive though, you should be able to do that under normal windows operation :-s
When I do a chkdsk on the external, it is finding the errors, but it reports "Errors found. CHKDSK cannot continue in read-only mode." So I assumed that means I need to do it at boot time.
When I rebooted, it started to perform the chkdsk, but on the C: drive. I went to bed. When I woke up Windows was booted and I can't tell if it even did a chkdsk on the external USB drive.So I have shelved this until the weekend when I will put the drive in a sled and stick it in a box so it is connected to a proper IDE controller.
