chkdsk /f error when running defragmenter in XP tablet edition

By brendan.obrien@bethlehemc ·
I am running win xp tablet edition 2005 and have tried to run disk defragmenter but got the message: Disk Defragmenter has detected that Chkdsk is scheduled to run on the volume: (C:). Please run Chkdsk /f.

I did (start - run - chkdsk)and get the message: Chkdsk cannot run becuase 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>. I type Y and reboot the machine. The next time i run deframenter, i get the same message.

Next i tried to run chkdsk from safemode w/ prompt and got the same message as before. No matter what i try, i can't solve the issue.

Please help.

can't run defrag or chkdsk

I also am having same problem and nothing I have tried has worked. My problem specificly is that even though I am selecting "yes" when prompted to run chkdsk /f at reboot.... when I reboot chkdsk dosent run ... mean not at all /f paramter or no parameters it just dosn't run. my next attempt to solve this problem will involve using the fsutil volume dismount command in the hopes that I will then be able to run chkdsk /f and not get the "cant lock drive error message" ..... wish me luck.
