Default Repost: Chkdsk: Cannot open volume for direct access

Greetings,

On Vista Home Premium, when the trying to run chkdsk from boot, the
following error comes up:

Checking file system on C:
Type of the file system is NTFS
Cannot open volume for direct access

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Kevin

Default Repost: Chkdsk: Cannot open volume for direct access

I have found on Vista that this problem occurs only when running Check disk with both check box options selected. To clear the problem, uncheck both boxes and let check disk run. My machine ran with no errors. Then run check disk with one check at a time. "Automatically fix file system errors" will run at start up time. No boxes checked and "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors" checked, will run in Windows.
