my computer had this problem for few days now. I selected to scan my windows drive after i logged in my computer. i have windows XP. So after restarting the comptuer it gives out this error.

"Cannot acces the volume drive to scan"

and then computer starts normally.

Any ideas???

Thanks in advance

Try right clicking on My Computer and then click manage. Then click on Disk Management and see if there is a problem mentioned there about the had drive. You may have to reactivate the drive perhaps. I assume you are talking about scandisk or do you mean a virus scan?

I assume you are talking about Check Disk (CHKDSK), if so then use the following command from a CMD prompt window (START | RUN type CMD click OK) CHKDSK C: /X /R /F

This will Run CHKDSK on the C: partition and force the volume to be dismounted, and repair any errors after checking. See the help for CHKDSK from the command prompt by typing CHKDSK /?

or maybe even going to My Computer | right-click on the Disk you want | Properties |Tools and then use the "Check Now" option.

Cheers, Babe.
