hi apologies if i am in the wrong forum or break a rule, i did read the how to and am attempting to follow protocol
i am trying to help a friend defragment his hard drive. it is almost full and i feel that a defrag could help.
he is running windows xp home edition 2002 service pack 3 on a dell vostro 1000
every time we try to run disk defragment we get an error saying
"Disk defrag has detected that chkdsk/f is scheduled to run on C drive."
i googled for help but everyone has different answers so i decided i would not try 800 different things and just come here and ask for one educated person to help me out
we did however try start menu>run> chkdsk /f and chose y and rebooted but we still get that error when we try to defrag.
thanks in advance for any help
