Re: quick question about dosemu

Thanks for getting back in touch Stu!  All versions of chkdsk are
DOS-based (even in Windows 10) which do understand NTFS.  Obviously
one from something like DOS 6.22 would not know anything about NTFS.
I would be interested in running a modern version of it.  The ntfs-3g
chkdsk equivalent can't be used because it is not a true check disk.
It can only perform some basic checks.  Everything I have come across
says to use the native chkdsk for an actual check.
