chkdsk needs exclusive control of the HD, when you run it without the /f switch it just reports the errors and then tells you it can't continue.

You can run check disk from your desktop. Just make sure that you use the command:
chkdsk volume:/f
Please click the link below for details on how to run this command. Locate the section entitled "Manual steps to run Chkdsk at the command prompt." for step by step directions.

Can’t get the mobile email signature right?

Not having any luck when trying to create an email signature for mobile devices? Does the formatting keep messing up? Make sure you have great email signatures on all devices by using Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365.
