CHKDSK Frequency
What is a reasonble frequency to run CHKDSK?
I would consider my computer use "light" probably creating about one file
per day. I run disk cleanup weekly.
Thanks

Hi, Frank.

> What is a reasonble frequency to run CHKDSK?


Never!

Unless you have a problem that you need CHKDSK to cure. This is NOT a
routine maintenance task, but a disaster recovery tool. Not that it is
likely to hurt anything, but it falls clearly into the "If it ain't broke,
don't fix it!" domain.

I run Disk Cleanup probably less than twice a year. And I create a lot more
than one file a day.
