Do you want to scan and fix
Quite a few times now teachers have been putting their XP friendly usb pen drives into Vista machines at home. and get "Do you want to scan and fix" message pop up. There is a second option to continue without checking on the message window, but most people think they are doing the right thing by proceeding and letting Vista mangle the usb drive while fixing, ironically "encountering no errors it the process"
It seems that the problem lies with pen drives that have plain FAT file systems, it doesn't seem to happen with any drive with FAT32, but I'm happy to be proved wrong?
What I would like to know, has anybody got a way of stopping Vista offering to check and break FAT partitioned pen drives when they are plugged in?
I'd also like to stop the msg from bugging me.
Just tried the chkdsk /F, but believe the message will continue to reappear to as soon as I've rebooted Vista.
I think I may know a workaround: Uninstall Vista and switch back to XP. ;)
