it to run at the next startup. If you have more than one volume, specify which. Also configure it to "fix" any errors. Running it without a command to fix errors will only cause it to check for them.
I tried to run my scandisk on my computer a while back. I left my laptop on and went and did something. I thought it ran the scandisk...but everytime my laptop boots up (windows xp) the blue scan disk screen comes up when it should...but it says that the c drive or something like that does not have access and that scandisk cannot be completed at this time. How do I get my laptop to stop doing this? Thanks for the time.
