Just redirect the output to the file of your choice:
- Code: Select all
chkdsk > report.txt
yeah, well i don't use it from a command line, but from the GUI: right click on D:\ -> Properties -> Tools -> Check Now...

thanks for that. actually i did find it in the Event viewer (sorry, maybe should have mentioned it in my post) but it's hard to find it there, it's under Winlogon... i thought maybe it was saved to some text file somewhere.
i can't find the bootex.log file. possibly once its contents are copied to the Event Viewer it's erased?
thanks for the link. i'll check it out.
