I am running Win XP Home on my Laptop and regularly defrag the disk using Diskeeper 7.0. I have recently rebulit the machine from a clean NTFS reformat (full not quick) and when Diskeeper tries to run I get a message that defragging was cancelled due to inconsistencies on the disk and to run chkdsk. When I run chkdsk from a cmd prompt get the following:
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

The type of the file system is NTFS.

I then run chkdsk /f (and have also tried chkdsk /f/r). Following a reboot chkdsk runs and does not report any problems or repairs but if I then imediately run chkdsk from the cmd prompt I get the same error.
