I am very impressed by your actively maintained blog—and your timely and polite replies to everyone's questions.
May I ask you a question? Until very recently, I had been using an XP machine. Thanks to a very old and excellent article in Maximum PC, I had got used to using Task Scheduler to perform an automated chkdsk with /f and /r once a week, at night.
It involved creating a batch file with the following commands:
echo y|chkdsk C: /f /r
With my new computer, I am now getting used to Win 7. Never too late, as they say ;-) Unfortunately, neither the above batch file nor any other instruction I can find from trawling on the internet seems to have been able to achieve the same simple thing I used to be able to do on my computer, ie. create a scheduled task that reboots the computer and then automatically does a chkdsk with the fix and recover options. I have found several solutions on the internet. The trouble is, none of them appears to work :-(
I wondered if you might be able to help??? Hopefully...
