I came across this problem a couple days ago, I went to defrag my computer(work laptop) and i get this error:
"Disk Defragmenter has detected that Chkdsk is scheduled to run on the volume ©.
Please run Chkdsk/f."
I started by running the CHKDSK /f (run>cmd and then run CHKDSK /f C: reboot and nothing).
I've looked up the solution to this problem and NOTHING has solved this issue I'm having.
CHKDSK(read-only) comes back with 3 errors.
CHKDSK wont even run on start up if scheduled too, and I cannot run it because it says its "scheduled" to run (even when its not).
fsutil dirty query c: comes back -'DIRTY'
I did the whole:
Click Start, then Run, type cmd in the Open box and click "Ok". At the prompt in the Command window, type the following commands, pressing "Enter" after each one: (Please note the spaces in the following commands.)
* chkntfs /d ..... (This will reset autocheck options to default)
* chkntfs /c C: ..... (This will allow checking drive C:)
* fsutil dirty query c: ..... (This queries the drive and will most likely tell you that it is dirty)
* chkntfs /x c: ..... (The x switch tells Windows to NOT check the specified drive on the next boot)
At this point, restart your computer, it will not do a chkdsk and will boot directly to Windows.
This next step is important as this is where the Dirty Bit will be unset.
Click Start, then Run, type cmd in the Open box and click "Ok". At the command prompt, type the following, pressing "Enter" after each one: (Again, note the spaces.)
* chkdsk /f /r c: ..... (To manually run a full chkdsk operation)
* Y ..... (To accept having it run on the next boot)
This seems to be the common "solution", but for me this hasent solved anything.
C: comes back as DIRTY and nothing I've tryed has resolved this.
CHKDSK dosen't even attempt to run at start up. I've checked the scheduler-nothing in there. I've tryed everything I can think of except re-install XP. (If i reboot this computer one more time its gonna slap me lol)
This problem is happening on my work laptop, I run all the same programs on my home desktop and its fine.
Its not like this is effecting my computers performance, but its driving me crazy not being able to resolve this.
