how can i schedule a weekly disk check?


Recommended Posts

i recently picked up a scheduling utility, which works out great for automatically running a daily spyware check, a weekly defragment, etc. i'm sure this program could be used to do a weekly disk check, if i only knew the command syntax, but i havent been able to find it surprisingly. im tired of manually clicking around to do my system maintenance, and am trying to learn to automate all this stuff, that's my ultimate goal. thanks in advance if anyone knows the command line syntax to schedule a disk check at next restart

I'm not sure if this will help but the dos command is "chkdsk *:\ /F"

The F switch fixes any errors on the disk, and for this to be done it has to run before Windows is loaded. So this will run it at next boot. If you type it into command prompt now you'll see it asking if you'd like to schedule for next system start.

Hope this helps
