CHKDSK Assist is a GUI based script that allows you to schedule CHKDSK operations on your PC.

I welcome any questions or comments about it. Thanks!

OS Support: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7
Tested On: Windows XP, Windows 7

Download Links -> Installer OR ZIP - Both link directly to my website for the download.  CHKDSKAssist_setup.exe is the version with an installer based on Inno Setup, CHKDSKAssist.zip is a zip file with no installer.

You can also find this script on my website: http://www.tylerretelle.com

Thanks.

I just discovered a particularly annoying bug with v1.2.0.  I've posted v1.2.1, which fixes the bug.

let us know if you'd like some webspace on a dcmembers.com account.

Hmm...I think I might like that!

I haven't tried it but there are two GUIs for the excellent JKDefrag one of which is ScanDefrag which also enables scheduling of ChkDisk among other things... but I'll try yours soonish...

Just giving this useful script a modest bump. Thanks for this, it's a great improvement over the meaningless progress bar that accompanies the default Windows control for CHKDSK.

I should send you more credits for not choosing a mouser-esque name such as "Check disk+spell and find robot"

hi darklight
I had a go at this today (been getting some blue screens lately..)

First:
I used the portable version
OS xp sp2 home

So I scheduled it for a restart,
I rebooted & went for a cup of tea
when I came back, it was finished - I checked the log & it said
Quote
The type of the file system is NTFS.

Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
process.  Would you like to schedule this volume to be
checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N) y

This volume will be checked the next time the system restarts.
so I restarted & went off again but came back again to the same message

Third time, I got a beer & manually entered chkdsk c: /f /r & sat in front of the computer smiley - it checked everything, showed the results for about 1/100th of a second.So I went back to your app & checked the log again to see the same message again.

So now I googled & discovered I could look in the event viewer under applications (eventvwr.msc) (I'm learning a lot today)
The log of the chckdsk was there

so, I'm wondering:
a) have I done something silly (well possible)
b) is my computer wonky (well possible)
c) is your app not able to find the logfile (see next)

Just in case it's related:
Quote from: me (in another thread here somewhere)
unfortunately in my case I had an error report for the Dr.Watson debugger last year - MS's 'solution' was to disable it - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949820 (I remember at the time it was seizing up and created a multi GB log file).

tomos,

Sorry for my late reply...I haven't checked this post too much lately.

From what you posted, everything is working fine.  The log file only logs what is output when CHKDSK Assist sends its command to cmd.exe.  If you need to reboot first (required if you are checking the drive with the Windows install on it) you will see exactly what you posted in the log file.  I should probably make this more clear, and will do so in the documentation in the next release.

I'll also look into pulling the info from the Event Viewer into the script itself or at least adding a link so you can get to it quickly.
