Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)
I've never seen any difference in performance when run as above or from the Recovery console Command Prompt. DO you have a link to the article that talks abut the system resource allocation problem? I'd like to read it.
On your question, I'm pretty sure that I saw the resource allocation mentioned somewhere on this forum, but I haven't tried to find it again.
I ran sfc /scannow yesterday, and it found and corrected errors, but when i boot up, I still get an autock error, about recently installed software.
I tried to run chkdsk on the boot drive from an elevated command prompt this morning, thinking I could force a dismount with the /x switch, but that apparently won't work on the boot drive. I was thinking that if it would dismount, with Windows already loaded, that I could just reboot the PC when it was done.
When i try to set chkdsk to run at start-up, I believe that autock is interfering, so I have to fix that first, I guess.
