Check an image in advanced mode

Checking of an image consists of a few steps:

1. Choose the image file from a standart file open dialog.
2. Type in your athentication data necessary to open the image.

Information dialog appears that presents you the results of the performed check:

There is more information about errors found in the checked image on a line at the bottom of the window. Basically there are three kinds of errors:

  • Inconsistency in file allocation tables (FAT): FAT table copies are not exactly consistent. CheckImage chooses for you the table by which less errors were found, but you can later select the determining FAT table yourself . When you choose to repair the image, the selected FAT table will be copied over the other.
  • Lost clusters: Some sectors are marked as if they were filled with data, but they don't belong to any file in the image. These sectors are marked as free space by repairing of the image.
  • Demaged object(s): A demaged object means either a file or a directory that contains errors. The repair method which will be used depends on the error(s) found in each demaged object. Some of them even can't be repaired and have to deleted.
