Today I tried to do a bit of maintenance on the pc.

I tried to analyze and defrag, when this message appeared.

Disk Defragmenter has detected that Chkdsk is scheduled to run on the volume (C) Please run Chdsk

Can anybody help, if so, what do I have to do!!

chkdsk /f cannot run because the volumeis in use by another process. Would you like to reschedule this volume to be checked the next time the systen start (y/n)
