    I don't think it is logged unless you add that switch somehow at the command prompt. Although I don't see the opton in the list and it does look like there is supposed to be a log, I have never come accross one.
    There must be a hidden or command prompt setting for it. Try a search for "windows secrets" or "windows secret settings" on google.
    C:\>chkdsk /?
    Checks a disk and displays a status report.

    CHKDSK [volume[[path]filename]]] [/F] [/V] [/R] [/X] [/I] [/C] [/L[:size]]

      volume          Specifies the drive letter (followed by a colon),
                      mount point, or volume name.
      filename        FAT only: Specifies the files to check for fragmentation.
      /F              Fixes errors on the disk.
      /V              On FAT/FAT32: Displays the full path and name of every file
                      on the disk.
                      On NTFS: Displays cleanup messages if any.
      /R              Locates bad sectors and recovers readable information
                      (implies /F).
    /L:size        NTFS only:  Changes the log file size to the specified number
                      of kilobytes.  If size is not specified, displays current
    /X Forces the volume to dismount first if necessary.
    All opened handles to the volume would then be invalid
    (implies /F).
    /I NTFS only: Performs a less vigorous check of index entries.
    /C NTFS only: Skips checking of cycles within the folder

    The /I or /C switch reduces the amount of time required to run Chkdsk by
    skipping certain checks of the volume.

    Go to run-->msconfig and stop worrying about the little warnings that say you'll fuck up your comp.
    Then go to BOOT.INI, and select /BOOTLOG
    NOW go to run-->cmd-->chkdsk C:/*.* /V /R /X
    That should do it. That 'll scan every file on C: for fragmention, force a dismount if needed, log cleanup messages, and also fix broken sectors. It worked the last time I checked. You may not have to use C:/*.* but the last time I did this was with I think 95 or 98...
