    Hi :)

    I am getting this message whenever I want to Defrag my C: drive. Others drives are defragging properly. All this happened when I installed Diskeeper 10 Premium version. Two weeks ago it defrag C: drive. But now when I try to defrag it says CHK is running by operating sys or this is used by any other process. I have made repeated restarts as said by windows scandisk and diskeeper. Nothing happened.

    Please help :oops:

    Config:
    WinXP SP2
    2.8c Intel with 512 MB ram

    Hi,
    It happens, if some other disk utility is using/locking hte disk while Defragmenter/Scandisk is running.

    Try running Disk Defragmenter in SAFE MODE.

    Its not working....Why this happened I dpn't know. May be Diskeeper has some role in it.

    Any method to unlock the drive or to shut the on-going scandisk (chkdsk).....Please help.

    Hi,
    Try this. Go to Command Prompt and then type this command chkntfs /x C: and press Enter key. ( The syntax is chkntfsSPACE/xSPACEC: )

    first try unloading all the process from the tast manager except explorer.exe and taskmgr.exe
    try cleaning the windows temp folder
    and if it doesn't help i would say uninstall diskeeper...

    Hello Swatkat :)
    No the defrag is not working......not in safe mode also. This Diskeeper made my machine a junk. You know I scan with Norton Disk Doctor...it showa some index error in two drives in which I defragged with Diskeeper. Seriously i am in soup. :oops:

    Don't know what to do.....:roll:
