    Is this like SAFE? That no fatal errors would occur?
    My tuneup is already notifying me to run a check. but i havent done that before.
    Please help me or tell me anything about checking the hard drive for errors
    i'm still a little worried and afraid, my mom would really get mad at me if i mess up our laptop

    I have 280GB in my hard drive
    how long would that take if ever i will run the checking???

    or is there an easier way to do the error checking? i've seen the command prompt chkdsk but still the same.. i havent done that, too
    Im afraid to screw up since my mom...
    whatever i just need guidance please

    Oh come on - 'No one is replying'... give your post a chance
    You post @ 1:18 & worry you don't have an answer 1/2 hour later

    Anyway, I can't tell you how good good or bad the disk doctor actually is, as I've never used it - but I did find this reply after a quick search

    The program may be asking you to do a check but it might not find anything actually wrong (it may suggest a Defrag), as some programs do ask at intervals for you to do a 'routine check' (a bit like an antivirus program may tell you that your definitions are outdated and do you want to check/update them)

    IIRC - the program will only suggest fixes and give you the oppotunity to fix them - you could always see what's wrong & say 'No', then tell your Mum & let her do it
