If you are using XP:

Open up my computer by double-clicking.  Then right click the drive you would like to check.  Then select properties.  Tools tab.  Then click check now.  You'll be told that Scandisk can't run the scan because some files are in use or some such.  It will give you the option of having Scandisk run the next time XP is started.

If you are using Me or below, try using scandisk.  If you can't find it check windows help file for scandisk.

Total Cost: Free.
