The information in this article applies to:
• Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 5.0
This article was previously published under Q76846
The CHKDSK *.* command, when executed on 3.5-inch 1.44 MB media
containing a zero-byte file, stops (hangs) the system.
Deleting the zero-length file from the disk allows CHKDSK to run
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem with MS-DOS version 5.0.
We are researching this problem and and will post new information here
as it becomes available.
