Hi Bernd,

I'm the one who should say thanks, because as a user I'm the
beneficiary of your work :-) Besides, this gives me a sense of

That's the one I'm using.

If it can be done with a Linux\Ubuntu computer, then yes. I
would probably need help on how to do it.

Alain mentioned Norton utilities 8, but unfortunately I do not
have it.

There is a possibility that this is not a 'real' problem in the
hard drive, but just some incompatibility between ChkDsk and the
FAT16 kernels.

Yesterday Euphoria was slow, and it returned to normal after I
ran ChkDsk and Defrag (under kernel FAT32 of course).  I mention
this again because it is currently the only indication I have
that ChkDsk and Defrag  are doing their job.
