"does what it says it will do."

August 22, 2011  |  By Tadlem

2011-08-22 11:26:27  |  By Tadlem

 |  Version: CheckDrive 2010

Pros

it isn't supposed to defrag. it DOES give a list of errors at the bottom (scroll) & they seem accurate. no, it doesn't lock the disk, but why should it? it DOES repair as it says. maybe the other reviewers doen't understand the use of this program?

Cons

none. but i haven't compared it to Windows chkdsk.

Summary

it took about several minutes (no where close to thirty!) to do a scan on my computer and found three errors. it deleted a ton of .jpg's that i didn't need and cleaned my disk well. yes, it shows 'stacked gold bars', but this is simply this utility's 'progress bar'. i'm not sure why this was even mentioned in the review. at the bottom, all of the information about the disk, including free space, etc., is listed. overall, i think a decent program esp. for a new user.

"Does What it says it is going to"

February 14, 2011  |  By xfire0384

2011-02-14 19:26:57  |  By xfire0384

 |  Version: CheckDrive 2010

Pros

Recovered the drive I was loosing. Rebuilt the needed tables on the HD so I could access the data and pull the data off

Cons

Ads are scar-ware-esx. You have to signup with an email address and name to get the "unlock" key.

Summary

I wasn't looking for much when I downloaded it, especially from something free (I was looking to have to spend upwards of $80 to save this drive). Installed and signed up with a spam account (to get the unlock key) and let it run.

It took about an hour to do the full scan of a 200GB drive. It prompted to fix errors on next reboot, and it did just that. It was able to recover the needed tables on the HD so I could access the data again.

"Works at but misleading advertising"

July 21, 2010  |  By pyro226

 |  Version: CheckDrive 2010

Pros

Simple tool for running a checkdisk, but defraggler also has this function and may find more disks (defraggler found and repaired disks that XP couldn't)

Cons

The ads in this product is definitely fake. It uses meters to "show" how fragmented the disk is or how many junk files are on the disk. After running a defrag program and ccleaner, the both "meters" were still in the bad red zone.

"Worked fine for me"

 |  Version: CheckDrive 2008

Pros

Unlock code arrived instantly. Fixed problem with hard disk drive when I couldn't get Windows error checking to run.

Cons

Adverts for other products suggest there are other problems that need their commercial software to fix. I know that this problems don't exist.

Summary

Does what it says on the tin. And it's free!

"Not necessary."

 |  Version: CheckDrive 2008

Pros

You can check your own disk for errors. Click start click my computer right click on C or D drive click properties click tools and click check now this will check the hard drive you choose for errors.

Cons

Check Drive is a waste of disk space and a memory hog.

 |  Version: CheckDrive 2008

Pros

Nothing.

Cons

Couldn't run this program. It says it will email you a free unlock code which you need to run the program but I tried 6 times using e different email acocunts and never got my unlock code, & there's no spport offered so I reached a dead end. Awww, I need a check disk program too, rats.
