Hiya. I'm running Windows XP, and I've been trying to defragment my computer, but a message keeps appearing telling me that it can't, due to an inconsistency in the filesystem. Any thoughts?

Defragmentation of (C: ) has been aborted due to inconsistencies that were detected in the filesystem. Please run CHKDSK or SCANDISK on (C: ) to repair these inconsistencies, then run Disk Defragmenter again.

And yes, I have already tried that.

Sorry if I'm being too obvious but, is this what you did?
Right click the C drive in My Computer or Windows Explorer. Select
Properties. On the Tools page, use the error checking section to initiate chkdsk. On the dialog screen, check both boxes and click OK. You'll receive a message that the tool cannot run at the moment. Answer yes to run it on the next startup. Close the windows and restart the computer to let chkdskdo it's job.
