asked on

scheduling disc check without confirmation

Hi experts

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?

Great work by both of you.

Both have the solution to my problem.

ANd thanks to Masq, I learned about another tool for the maintenance script I am trying to prepare.
