Hi there pk55200,

Chkdsk corrects disk errors only if you specify the /f command-line option.

ie: type 'chkdsk /f'  into the command prompt

chkdsk /?   <- Gives you list of options
chkdsk /f /r <-- performs a full surface scan (can take a while to finish)

Another way:
Start > Run > Explorer > Go to C: drive in the left pane > Right click & click Properties > Tools > Check Now > "Automatically fix file system errors"
