Automating SCANDISK on Hard Reset
Posted on 1998-11-11
I have a Windows 95 machine setup to accept calls for remote access using pcAnywhere. I have pcAnywhere set to shutdown and restart the computer when the caller logs off.
Problem is, sometimes I get the "I need to run SCANDISK, press any key to continue" message when the computer restarts. This always happens on a power failure, and sometime happens during a normal logoff/restart.
What I want is to tell this machine to just go ahead and do the SCANDISK thing, automagically fixing any problems it finds. I know SCANDISK can be told to do things without intervention, but I need to tell the boot process (that detects an improper shutdown) to just go ahead and run SCANDISK.
