Windows 98/SE will actually keep track of computer maintenance dates for you. Friday, February 23, 2001 Title: Keeping track of disk maintenance Blurb: If you want high-resolution photos, your camera may hold only 3 or 4 shots without a memory upgrade.
You may already know that you can run ScanDisk, Disk Defragmenter, and Backup manually at any time, but you may not remember when you last performed that maintenance. Windows 98/SE will actually keep track of these maintenance dates for you. Double-click My Computer, right-click your desired drive (i.e. the C: drive), then click the Tools tab. You’ll see how many days it’s been since you last ran each disk maintenance procedure, and you can launch those procedures right from the Tools tab. This is a handy feature that can help protective measures for your drive(s) up-to-date.
