Cant defrag because of Chkdsk/f.

  hzhzhz 11:41 12 Feb 06

I'm using an 80gb hdd and Chkdsk/f. is stopping me defragging. Message says I have to run Chkdsk/f.. Ive been to MS site but some simpler info would be appreciated if possible.I'm not into too much heavy brainwork this morning. Thanks.

Right, Ive run chkdsk but message says f parameter not covered. Whats my next step please.

How do I close all programs or processes that have open handles to the volume?. chkdsk runs and reports nothing and when I try to run chkdsk /f I get an error message.

Ive tried to run chkdsk /x which should "fix file system errors on the disk, dismounts the volume first,closing all open file handles". but message says it cant run because "the volume is in use by another process". I certainly dont need this on a sunday morning!.

Will tackle that later today. Now I am going to read the Beano.

I had a laptop that was refusing to defrag until chkdsk had run,despite repeatedly rebooting the message refused to depart.I tried Recovery Console and ran chkdsk /r,chkdsk /f and a variety of other permutations,even sfc /scannow but still defrag refused to play.I eventually traced it to a modem driver with a corrupted file and reinstalling the driver allowed defrag to run unhindered.

Trying SG Atlantis® solution but how do I get from SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager into the option to change the BootExecute entry autocheck* /r\DosDevice\C:

click the session manager folder. you'll get a list of entries appear in the right pane it'll be second or third in the list.
