    That's because "scandisk" doesn't come with XP. There is a different tool
    for XP called "checkdisk". You can invoke it by going to "my computer" then
    right-click your drive letter and choose "properties", then click the
    "tools" menu. From there click "error checking". If you want to do a
    thorough error check and repair on your boot drive, the check will be
    scheduled to run at the next bootup, and then you reboot in order to run the
    check. If you just do a basic error check with no automatic repair, the
    system will not need to be rebooted.
