Windows 7: Need the correct command to run Chkdsk on more than one drive

Need the correct command to run Chkdsk on more than one drive

Hi, can anyone help with the correct command to run Chkdsk on two drives.... Drive letters C: and D:

Ideally I'd like Chkdsk to check both drives and fix errors on reboot and I'd like to save the correct command for this in Run-Command's Favorites.

Additionally I'd like any advice that you can offer on how to check encrypted drives for errors and also external drives. Each time I try to check these drives I get prompted to force a dismount then get a message saying that they will be checked on boot. The problem is that they won't be mounted on boot and as far as I can work out - error checking fails.

chkdsk /? should list all of the commands and tell you how to use them as well. Is this what you were after?
