You should be able to use any word processor to open these files...just double click on the file and a dialogue box should appear that allows you to choose what application to use to open the file...use something like write...

If the CHK file extension is already associated with a particular app (that possibly you have removed), click on the filename to highlight it...hold the shift key, and then right click in the highlighted area with the mouse...this will make an "open with" menu choice in the shortcut menu appear.  Choose "open with" and then choose an application to open the file with.

hopefully this helps...let me know if you have any additional questions...

Just curious: are CHK files are FILE0000.CHK, FILE0001.CHK etc ?
Just delete them. These files are leftovers from Scandisk work
(lost clusters).

That is exactly what these are...but if you are curious on where the lost clusters came from, or if you need info that you had lost, there may be readable text in them.
