NT HD repair, needs exclusive access

By mcggeek ·
On NT workstation and want to run repair, but keep getting message other users have access? What can I do to let NT know no-one else is accessing the drive. Set as Novell and Win network access.

Are you referring to chkdsk?? if so, run with the /f switch and reboot. NT will handle the repair at reboot. If Novell has the drive mounted as a share you will have to unmount it, then execute your repair.

Two ways to do this (except for the system partition, then you must use 1). 1, run with the /f and reboot, 2, stop all the services which are using the drive you want to access (the Server service is one notable one), then run the checkdisk.
