I assume this refers to an emulated ADFS drive provided by an hd4.hdf 

My emulated drive is named 'IDEDisc4' here.

I normally boot from HostFS so with HostFS as the current filing 
system the command to check the emulated ADFS drive is :-


(There is no *checkmap command in HostFS.)

With ADFS as the current filing system then both
  *checkmap IDEDisc4

*. will show the current filing system and drive.
