    hello
    when i put my VERY old and VERY used microSD card into my laptop (win7 if it matters?) it says it has and errors and ask if i want to scan and fix them
    or continue without doing anything it all works fine,
    should i try the scan and fix thing, or could it mess up the way thing work on the card, like one time i defrag it and everything broke

    sorry im not very good at this

    that happened for me once. i scanned and fixed it and just 'fixed it' (i forgot how it got fixed) i didn't get messed up or anything
    if it messes your sd card, dont blame me

    If windows vista / 7 detects that the removable flash drive (was it USB stick or just a memory card) that has not been removed properly or has traces of possible - It prompts to scan it and fix it.

    Just let it do it. Does not to harm (because, if it finds broken files they are broken any hecking way)

    This is good because it can fix up your SD card's filesystem a little, however I strongly recommend a good reformat with the Panasonic SD Formatter.
