PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Windows XP Pro
Problem Application Name & Version:Chkdsk
Problem Hardware Make & Model:N/A
Error Messages:Cannot open volume for direct access


SEE MY ANSWER AT THE END!:-[
When you schedule the Chkdsk utility to run a startup, you receive an error similar to:
When you schedule the Chkdsk utility to run a startup, you receive an error similar to:
Cannot open volume for direct access.
The type of the file system is NTFS.
IFSUTIL: Can't open drive. Status returned You receive 'Cannot open volume for direct access' when Chkdsk runs during Windows XP startup?
= c0000043.
Windows has finished checking the disk.
There is currently no fix for this problem.
When a solution becomes available, Microsoft will probably release a hotfix, or provide a workaround. If a hotfix becomes available, Microsoft will include the fix in a Windows XP service pack.
NOTE: You may have success if you schedule Chkssk to run at startup and use the /X switch, which will force a dismount.

RESOLUTION
To have Chkdsk or Autochk lock the partition and perform their appropriate tasks, complete the following steps:
Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click the Services icon, and then change the Start Type of the other third-party utility to Manual.
Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Devices.
Check for third-party devices set to run at startup that might be locking the volume, and if you locate any, double-click the third-party device, and then set its startup type to Disabled.

NOTE: If you are unsure if it is safe to disable the device, create a test hardware profile, and then disable the device in the test hardware If this does not work, revert back to your original profile. To create a test hardware profile:
Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click System.
Click the Hardware Profiles tab, click Original Configuration, click Copy, and then name the profile Test.
You can now disable devices or services in the test hardware profile. To do so, use the following steps:

Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Services or Devices.
Click the service or device you want to disable, click Hardware Profile, click Test, and then click Disable.

[size=18]MY ANSWER FOR XP Pro USERS............... : Start-Run-msconfig(type it!)-'Diagnostic Start Up-load basic devices & services only'. Run your 3rd party;(something like Norton Speed Disk .tm.) chdsk or Windows 'error checking' in....: Start-My Computer-Properties-Tools. Then....reboot and your prob's should be solved! Chkdsk WILL run (in my experience) using the wonderfull if sometimes enigmatic Windows XP Professional.

Hope this gives LIGHT to some plp. With the love jesus !  :?[/size]
