Chkdsk on Windows 2003 Service Pack 1/Service Pack 2

Does anyone know of any good articles that explain what exactly happens
during the different stages of a chkdsk?

Are there any differences between Service Pack 1 and Service Pack 2 for
chkdsk?

Thanks,
Eric Sabo

What sort of things do you wish to know?

Googling this might help:

[ chkdsk technical site:microsoft.com "/r" "/f" ]

I doubt there are any significant differences between SP1 and SP2 unless you
see new switches.

The following pretty much did it for me:

/F Fixes errors on the disk.
/R Locates bad sectors and recovers readable information
(implies /F).

But surely you want to know more if you are asking.... <grin>

Herb,

I try that already but it does not tell you the details to what exactly the
different stages do.

Approx how would it take for the different stages? If you have a
corrupted volume then do you only need to run chkdsk one time or do you need
to do two passes?

As for the differences:
Service Pack 1 - version 5.2.3790.1830 13 KB
Service Pack 2 - version 5.2.3790.3959 14 KB

So what enhancements/fixes are in Service Pack 2?

I can't recall the prompts but they seemed reasonably explantatory when
running it.

Copy the exact wording down and try Googling on those phrases.

I have never done it twice -- once has always been enough (when it worked
and it frequently does.)

Probably just bug fixes if any. Maybe just the version number.

Run the one that goes with your OS version only.
