CheckDisk is a relatively small but extremely useful utility that helps you find and fix common drive errors within your Windows system. The program's main interface is quite plain and straightforward, supplying you with three options to explore and correct your drive. These are the standard, default settings; detailed drive information such as capacity, file location and size; and the file directory list, which list all the files currently in use on your computer and how many are currently being used by your operating system. There is a comprehensive list of errors that will be fixed, allowing your computer to run much faster and error-free as a result. However, it is important to note that if your computer runs slow, or if any other symptoms occur that are unrelated to CheckDisk, you should ensure that the problem is resolved by either downloading and running a genuine piece of software, or by consulting your manufacturer's support website and contacting their support staff.
One of the most frequently used and regularly resolved issues is that caused by invalid operation keys or orphaned files on a drive. CheckDisk will identify these problems and show you how to correct them, before proceeding to the next step. If you have identified one or more of these issues, you will probably want to run a full defragmentation of your system. Defragmenting your hard drive will improve the performance of your PC and prevent errors which lead to slower performance. Please note that after defragmentation CheckDisk will restart.
Although CheckDisk is an excellent program, it does require that you use a bit of time and effort to get the best results. After installation, it will need to be used to find and identify errors and then fix them. Although it is possible to fix most errors by using the CheckDisk program itself, there is also a tool which is included with the software, which makes it even easier to identify and fix problems. This tool is called ParetLogic and is found within the "Add/Remove Programs" section of your system. It is simple to use and can be found by searching for ParetLogic in any search engine.
