Is it possible to apply such command into OS' "Run" module? ...

To perform a scandisk of all drives on reboot.

Thanks in advance. :)

Is there a reason for doing this, like you have very large volumes and you must check integrity on every device to insure uptime ? Scandisk is not avail in XP and is replaced with chkdsk. Auto start of chkdsk at boot time is controlled by a volume's "dirty bit" indicating the file system on that volume has some problem. If it is not set, why would you want to run a chkdsk. (And actually it is autochk, a variation of chkdsk that runs at boot time.

Autocheck is essentially useless. Aside from anything else, it does not run with the /r switch. If you want to create a script to run checkdisk on boot I guess someone here can help you with that, but it would have to be chkdsk /r to be of any use and what is the purpose?

Allan: So right about Autochk. Only mentioned it so a person knows that chkdsk wasn't being run at boot.

To perform a scandisk of all drives on reboot.


to perform that you need to type scandisk command a couple times (repeat command), depend's on how many drives that you want to scan, if 2 drives you must enter scandisk command 2 times, if 3 drives than need 3 command.
