WhenI try to defrag I get the message:
Disk Defragmentor has detected the chkdsk is scheduled to run on the volume: ERGO (c:)
Please run Chkdsk /f
When I run chkdsk /f
or chkdsk /f/r
or try and run it from right clicking on c:> propoerties> tools and ticking the two check boxes.
and then restart the computer I get the folowing message during restart:
The type of file system is NTFS
Checking the type of the file system is NTFS
Cannot open Volume for direct access
Windows has finished checking the disk
I've run speedefrag and am dubious as to whether its doing anything. After restarting computer it loads up the desk top background and then computer shuts down after a minute without anthing else happening.
She's got Windows XP
Also running it in safe mode it freezes mid flow. One problem at a time though but I thought it was farily signficant.
Thanks very much for looking at this
