    :cry: Help!!,I cant use checkdisk to scan for errors on my Win XP Pro
    PC as whenever I try to do so or schedule a test and restart...I get the
    following error.....[cannot open volume for access] and then checkdisk
    says that the test is finished.

    The problem started when I converted my FAT32 file system to NTFS
    using the internal command prompt command.So no matter how many errors my [C:\] drive contains I just cant scan it even before XP loads..
    as all I fet to see is that the volume cannot be accessed.

    However my other partition [D:\] drive which is FAT32 has no such problem.....I can peacefully use checkdisk on it and rectify filesystem errors. SOMEONE PLZ ADVICE AS TO HOW I CAN GET CHECKDISK TO
    SCAN MY C DRIVE.....HEEEELLLLLPPPPP!!!!!

    it should work unless u have dual OS and other is 9x system and you are suing scandisk of that OS to scan C drive..then it wont allow..infact it wont show c drive also..

    what you can do is..

    you can do check disk from command prompt in xp..

    start - run - cmd - chckdsk

    lemme know what happens..
