Got a 320 GB HD with two partitions. C + D is how they are listed. When I do an error check of C on a restart does that include D or do I have to do D separately?
If so then how do I do the whole drive in one big chunk. C with D? I have been Googling that.

If you're talking about the Windows error checking, then yes you'll need to do all partitions separately as it checks the file system (which is different on each partition, could be NTFS/FAT, different cluster size and file table, etc). C needs a restart as it is usually the system/boot partition of the OS in use. The others can all be done in Windows but I don't know if you can do it "sequentially" for a set of partitions... usually you don't need to error check that often to make this worthwhile ;)
