    Is there a way to run chkdsk f/r on all five drives on one PC at start up?
    PC runs Windows XP Pro SP3.
    This way all drives would be checked and errors fixed, if necessary, in one
    go, at start up on this machine.
    We intend to do this on this heavily used PC from time to time - we do not
    need the desired chkdsk functionality to kick in at every boot!
    Regards and TIA.

    Easy - create a scheduled task via the Control Panel that runs chkdsk.exe /F
    at the specified intervals. If you run the task under the System account
    then it will be invisible to the foreground session.
