chkdsk /r

How can I do a chkdsk /r?



If I try from a command prompt in Vista it tells me Access denied as you do
not have sufficient privileges. You have to invoke this utility running in
elevated mode.



If I try it form the tools menu at the drive letter it asks if I want to
schedule this event the next time windows starts. I say ok to that but
windows does not seem to do it when it starts again. It doesn't take any
longer to start.



If I try it from the install disk it says that this drive is locked.



Can someone help?



Thanks in advance, Bob.

Well, do it from an "elevated" command prompt. Go to "Orb" All
Programs Accessories. Right mouse click on Command Prompt and
choose "Run as administrator" from the context menu. Click on Continue.

When the command processor opens a window, type chkdsk /r and press
enter. Choose to execute the command when Windows reboots.

Thanks Tom. I did as your mentioned.

Upon rebooting it started and then went to a blank, dark screen with nothing
showing.

Is this unusual during the chkdsk /r procedure?

Also, will there be a report of some kind that I can review?

Expected behaviour:

The system sill start to boot Vista. Very early in that process, command
will transfer to a low-level command processor which will execute the chkdsk
command. The screen will go black. After a short delay, you should see some
output to the screen which gives you some indication of progress. A report
will be put on the screen. Control will return to Vista which will complete
its boot sequence.

By the way, if you want to do chkdsk on anything other than the Vista system
volume, you will have to issue a change disk command before starting chkdsk:
At the command prompt, type the letter of the desired drive followed by :.

If you are experiencing problems with this approach, plan 'B' is:

Navigate to Computer Right mouse click on the listing for the desired
drive. select Properties from the context menu which opens. Select
Tools Check now. Follow the prompts.

If the system can lock/dismount the disk (this prevents any other use of the
disk while it is being checked), it will proceed. If it cannot, it will
offer the option to do the check on the next system boot/start.
