    I use Windows XP PRO+SP2 and all updates. The problem is whenever I restart or shut down my system, the next time I start it CHKDSK pops up and starts truncating my files. It doesn't even recover them. I use a Segate 40GB and segate 160GB both PATA partitioned as 10GB sys 30GB storage on 40GB disk and 2 partitions of 75.4GB each on 160GB one. Each partition is NTFS. Everytime no matter how clean the shut down is CHKDSK pops up. Can I completely disable CHKDSK. I lost my 42GB worth collection of MP3's due to it.Please I wanna disable CHKDSK. Tell me how.

    Open regedit and nevigate to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager

    In right-side pane, change the value of DWORD value AutoChkTimeOut to 0

    And also remove all the entries, except the "*" from BootExecute key!
