Chkdsk not allowing me to defrag


Jun 23, 2006
Sorry if this is in the wrong place wasn’t for sure.

Ok when I go to defrag my computer I get a prompt telling me "Disk Defragmenter has detected that Chkdsk is scheduled to run on the volume:HP_PAVILION (C:) Please run Chkdsk /f"

When ever I try and run it, it tells me that it cant because of the whole "disk lock" thing and that it will next time I restart my computer. When ever it restarts it restarts as usual and doesn’t run "Chkdsk /f" and I’m back to not being able to defrag my computer.

Thank you for any help offered.
