you might want to run a check disk

5 stage pass

this will fix the errors


comand prompt c:>_

chkntfs (space) /d <'enter'>     

sets chkdsk ntfs file system to run even if no errors


chkntfs (space) /t:2 <'enter'>

sets the wait time before program starts

chkdsk (space) /f (space) /v (space) /x  <'enter'>

3 stage  ----runs a quick standard check disk

chkdsk (space) /v (space) /r (space) /x   

5 stage  ---runs a complete check disk (takes a long-long-long time)

(if repeated  multi times::will return "disk is clean" )

(this is the best check if you have the time to do it........... )

/f = fix

/v = verify every files check sum

/r = repair any error

/x = force to run

Sorry to be off topic, but I need some help.  I can't get any results after testing anymore.  I keep getting the message listed below.

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Lost connection to MySQL server during query in /home/testmyn/public_html/tools/test/results.php on line 323

Could not connect:

Last night my home office had me download some security updates, and now this is all I can get.  Any suggestions?  Keep it clean, okay?!!

Thank you.
