    I ran scandisk on a removable hd (connected via US8). In the event viewer I
    didn't find any log. Where is it?

    Thanks

    Scandisk is a Windows 98 tool. Did you perhaps mean chkdsk? If so then you
    can find its log in the Event Viewer (eventvwr.exe).

    How did you run scandisk on Windows XP? Is this a third party application?

    No, I do: double-click My Computer, then right-click the removable disk
    icon, Properties, Tools, Error-checking.
    I said "Scandisk" because in the italian version of XP there is: "Esegui
    ScanDisk..." ("Run ScanDisk...").

    When I scan the system disk, I find the log in: Event Viewer, Application,
    Winlogon, Event ID 1001, but I don't see the log of the last scan that I did
    on the removable disk.
