Every now and then I receive a message that says something like "your drive x needs to be scanned" (which is an external and only connected when adding new data). Running chkdsk with /f enabled reveals (view attachment). The mystery is that after running chkdsk, removing and then reconnecting the external drive, I receive no alerts for a while - then the cycle repeats, Mindblower!chkdsk-results-.jpgImage Enlarger

I always have the latest update installed and do not keep track of the version, Mindblower!
