    I'm having problems with an external HDD and I want to run chkdsk. I invoke
    the DOS prompt with chkdsk L:\ and it says that I can't and that I don't have
    sufficient priviledges ane I need to be in elevated mode. I am
    "Administrator". How do I run this utility??

  2. Right click command prompt and click run as administrator.
