Administrator privileges for chkdsk

I want to run chkdsk but vista says I need adminstrator clout to do it.
This is in the command prompt, of course, so how can that be done,
please? Cheers
paul

Re: Administrator privileges for chkdsk
Right-click the command prompt icon and choose run as admin.
Enter the proper credentials in the elevation prompt.
Run chkdsk.

Re: Administrator privileges for chkdsk

Hello Paul,

If you doing this from within Vista, then you will just need to run a
elevated command prompt instead. You would right click on the Command
Prompt shortcut and click on "Run as administrator" to do this.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Cheers, Shawn, and thanks for that. I've just entered the vista world
from ages with good old XP. I didn't imagine that the right click
procedure with "Run as administrator" would work on command prompt. I'll
be more adventurous from now on. Many thanks.
