chkdsk skips c drive on reboot


J

I have 7 hard drives (volumes) C - I. I can run a chkdsk on all drives but
C. 5 of them require a reboot. Chkdsk will not check the C drive after a
reboot. I've tried setting it to check just the C drive, and check the C
drive with other drives. It checks the other drive no problem but skips C
entirely, like it wasn't even queued to be checked.

I know there's a little corruption because when I run it from the command
prompt without the /f it reports some problems. I tried running chkdsk /f
from the command prompt and using the gui and going through error checking
and checking the automatically fix errors box. It just won't check C. The
system runs fine and there are not errors in the event log.

Any ideas?

Boot from your XP cd and enter Recovery Console
Once in there run a chkdsk /r

Thanks, I didn't know the /r option. That cleaned up the disk. I was using
/p but it didn't do any cleanup. I still don't know why it won't run the
chkdsk on a regular reboot after setting it to in tools, but at least I can
maintain the system like this.

(I haven't tried setting a disk check through windows and rebooting since
running chkdsk /r in the recover console. Maybe later if I get time.)

Thanks again,
jim
