I have four drives on my computer. The problem is that each time I start the computer the scan disk check (CHKDSK) runs for a drive even if I shut down my computer properly. I ran the thorough scan disk check but still for that drive, the scan disk check is always performed no matter what.
I wonder what is wrong although everything is fine and accessible along with drive data. Could you guys please help me out of this?
I am using Windows XP SP2
With reply to comment below, the setting for the registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\ Session Manager\BootExecute
is set to:
chkvdisk autocheck autochk *
And I am not sure what does it mean, is this same in your case too? What is the default value for that registry key?
chkdsk /f, I get the following message:
Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Chkdsk may run if this volume is dismounted first. ALL OPENED HANDLES TO THIS VOLUME WOULD THEN BE INVALID. Would you like to force a dismount on this volume? (Y/N)
I am not sure what it means especially the line
ALL OPENED HANDLES TO THIS VOLUME WOULD THEN BE INVALID.. So, I am afraid and I do not run
chkdsk/f because of data loss, etc.
