scheduling disc check without confirmation
Posted on 2011-02-12
I am trying to put together some maintenance scripts and I am hitting one dead end.
I hope it is simple enough for someone to figure out.
I need to run a script and one of the actions that the script need to carry out is schedule the disc check.
The problem is that the command "chkdsk c:" requires answer to the question "this can't be done, do u want to schedule it for next reboot? yes or no"?.
There might be another way to schedule a disc check on the next reboot but this is how I am trying to do it.
I do know there is a way to schedule a task itself using a command line with the schedule of "ONSTART" but that is probably of no use because that will schedule the task to run on every boot. Then I will have to figure out a way to delete the task.
But I can save all this trouble if I can just figure out how to run the "Chkdsk C:" command and answer yes to the question automatically.
Can someone help me with this?
