Defragment will not run on XP RRS feed

  • Question

  • I get the following message when I try to defragment.
    Defragmenter has detected that chkdsk is scheduled to run on the volume (C:).
    Please run chkdsk /f.

    I have run the chkdsk as stated but it does not do anything to help.

    This problem happens quite often. Every time I had someone "Fix the problem", it would happen again in about a month or so.
