------------------------------------------------------------------------

CHKD is a direct replacement for DOS ChkDsk which runs in about half
the time! CHKD code is optimized to perfom the basic disk integrity
tests only. It will detect all the disk errors reported by DOS ChkDsk.

CHKD performs the same disk tests as it's DOS "Big Brother" but uses
highly optimized code which causes it to run approximately twice as
fast! It does not contain any code required to fix logical disk
errors but will instead call the original ChkDsk to do this.

In addition to supporting all the options and command line syntax of
DOS ChkDsk, CHKD provides a /B (Brief) option which causes the program
to display a limited amount of disk information.

The following output is obtained by running CHKD without and with the
/B parameter.

Note: The similarity of output to that of the orignal DOS ChkDsk is
deliberate!
