When I try to defragment the external Maxtor hard drive in the same way as for the internal drive I get the following message:- Disk defragmenter has detected that Chkdsk is scheduled to run on the volume Maxtor 250Gb hard drive(M:),.Please run Chkdsk/f. How do I do this,please?
To 'I am Spartucus':- I did exactly as you said-space after the second k,space after the colon and NO full stop after the f and it worked fine. I really appreciate the help and guidance that you have given me Thank you.
Wee Eddie:- The Maxtor hard drive 'defragmented' very quickly so there really was no need to do this. However,I have used the hard drive many times over the past few years and I thought that it might need 'tidying up'.
