ScanDisk is designed to run in /CHECKONLY mode under Windows. However,
in rare circumstances, you can get ScanDisk to perform a surface scan
under Windows by typing SCANDISK /CHECKONLY /SURFACE.
This problem occurs when you run SCANDISK /CHECKONLY /SURFACE.
WARNING: Since there is a slight chance of data loss when you run
SCANDISK /CHECKONLY /SURFACE under Windows, Microsoft recommends you
run SCANDISK / CHECKONLY under Windows.
