    My hard drive is divided to c: and D:
    XP is on C:
    after downloading a program (my problem a few threads below)I wasnot able to boot to C: then
    I installed XP on partition D:
    so that I'll be able to see Partition C: to recover my work to D:which I did. after that Iformated C: and installed XP on C:
    now after the installation compleated. CHKDSK started checking partion D:
    I thought is anormal procedure but the CHKDSK is running for hours recovering millions of file. I can only see this part "Recovering Orphaned file..." of the line due to the rolling speed I wont be able to read the rest.
    Can any one shed a light and tell me what is happining

    Orphaned files are those that were created with an application that is not on the volumes that were searched. If you no longer need these files, you can remove them or you can assign a new parent application to the files in order to open them.

    Are you referring to the arabic program? Not that I am an expert, but the program or site you d/l it from sounds a bit "suss". It also sounds like your
    hard drive is a little corrupt.
