I run scan disk in "thorough" mode and when it gets to about 21,470 clusters of 52,030 it suddenly starts from the beginning again.  Can anyone help?

Repeatedly?
Or does it then stop running?
If allowed to continue, will it get past that spot on the next pass?

rmarotta     yes repeatedly. Yes I think the same place.

Jhance       this raises the question - why is it part of Windows95 if it won't run in Windows? And all programs are closed.

Commented:
SCANDISK can be run in full-up Win95 mode but only on a partition other than the active Win95 boot disk.  Even if all of your programs are closed, Win95 is still active and writing stuff to the disk as a result of it's multitasking nature.
