Hi

We use Windows 2003 Server as our file server and  the data on the E drive is almost 800Gb.I wanted to run Chkdsk on E drive. So I went to the E drive right clicked -properties

Under Error Checking
I checked -Automatically fix file system errors
 and Scan for and attempt for  recovery of  bad sectors.

and said ok and it said it will do the chkdsk after the server restarts.I restarted the  server and after it completes where would it by default save  the chkdsk report.
 I am keen to see if it had any bad sectors and the chkdsk fixed the errors or not.


Thanks
