Force Windows XP Checkdisk upon reboot
Posted on 2006-07-18
I need to be able to force a Windows XP machine to perform a checkdisk upon reboot. I would prefer to be able to force this within a command line script that is automatically run through the OS's "scheduled tasks" function and then also utilizing a separate utility (which I have) to force the XP machine to reboot. This so that I don't have to perform a checkdisk every single time I reboot and instead only when initiated by the script. Running checkdisk while the machine is running XP normally is not an option for me for other reasons I will not go into. I have found several articles on the matter from Microsoft and from other sources, including this site, but nothing seems to actually work. The machine simply reboots normally without enacting a checkdisk. Most recently I tried following the steps within the article:
