I did a forum search and found this:

"Disk utilities can provide excellent preventative maintenance by fixing directory corruption problems. But they can also render data unrecoverable in the event of extreme corruption."

Is Scandisk (included with Windows 98) good enough for checking my directory and fixing damage? Or is there something better that I should invest in? I want something that provides good preventative maintenance, yet is versatile enough to rescue data and repair damage should it occur.

I've worked with non-Windows OS's that use utilities which rebuild the directory periodically (say, once per week) to ensure it is corruption-free. I don't even know if "rebuilding the directory" is a term that applies to Windows, so I hope someone can enlighten me.

The only disk utility I've heard of for Windows is Norton Utilities. Are there any others? What do people recommend?

Thanks all.
