    Hi. Recently i accidently dropped a plug on my computers plug switch and knocked it to the off position. My computer obviously cut off straight away. Now whenever i boot my computer it runs CHKDSK on one of my hard disks. Due to this i can't defrag this hard drive. As when i try to, i get this error message - "Diskkeeper has detected that CHKDSK is scheduled to run on this volume: Programs Disk (D:). This is due to either i user request, or becuase the operating system has found errors in the file system. CHKDSK will run automatically during next system reboot. Until CHKDSK is run, Diskeeper cannot defragment this volume."

    Thanks for any help

    Your answer is in the error

    "CHKDSK will run automatically during next system reboot. Until CHKDSK is run, Diskeeper cannot defragment this volume"

    Just let it run thru one time when you got something else to do.
