Running chkdsk /f at startup 4 times in a row I get the following winlog report:
Cleaning up minor inconsistencies on the drive.
Cleaning up 1 unused index entries from index $SII of file 0x9.
Cleaning up 1 unused index entries from index $SDH of file 0x9.
Cleaning up 1 unused security descriptors.

I've read two MS articles on this. 255008 tells you to ignore the "cleaning
up" messages, but 327009 suggests getting a hotfix. The hotfix applies to
W2000 and I'm running XP PRO SP2. Questions: 1. Do I have problem with the
HD? It appears to be fine, no bad sectors -- see above -- no grinding or noise. 2. If there is no problem with the HD, is there a way to get rid of the messages? On a number of lists a number of users -- some of whom appear to be IT folks, say they also get such messages and that they mean nothing. Note please, the number of unused index entries varies from 1-5 depending on how often I run chkdsk /f
