The Un CHK program link above (at the top of the comparison table) is for version 3.Version 3 was built for Windows 2000, but might work on computers as old as Windows 95 view the Virus Total report.On the other hand, if you aren't in a state of panic over lost data, just delete any CHK files. That way if you ever do lose it all, the lost file fragments will be more likely to be complete files. If file is infected and it gets recovered, your antivirus may complain that the recovery program wrote the virus. And really, a fair percentage of all recoveries are due to a poorly-written virus causing file system problems.So when the recovery program renames a file from "chk" to "exe" and your antivirus pops up, please remember that your problem is the recovered file, not the program that recovered it! I compiled it and am offering it here for your consideration. Apparently some ne'er-do-wells are using the normal "file missing" message from Martin's File CHK program to scare you into installing something bad. The respected Virus Total analysis has been giving File CHK a clean bill of health since 2008.We downloaded the update file and made it available for you here..ezoic-wrapper img.wp-smiley, .ezoic-wrapper img.emoji .ezoic-wrapper #F8660_container img .ezoic-wrapper . Version 2 was built for Windows 95, but might work on computers as new as NT4 view the Virus Total report.Version 1 was built for Windows 3.1 and might work on computers as new as NT4 view the Virus Total report.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email us, or just ask in the comments below.On the downside, downgrading the firmware isn’t always possible.When it comes to applying a certain firmware, as this process is not without risks most of the times, it is recommended that this task be initiated by a power user in a steady power environment, such as the one provided by a UPS unit.Without this info, Windows can't find all the parts of the file. If you only run SCANDISK once a month, you get a month's worth of old crash junk.When SCANDISK or CHKDISK is run, all the parts are identified as "lost file fragments" and converted (if you want) into CHK files. If you were working on (and lost) something important just before a crash, you might want to try to recover any data from any CHK files that exist.
