7.14   Getting scandisk to Run Automatically

From K. Scott, Fri Feb 9 15:41:22 2001

Here is how to get windows to run scandisk without user intervention if necessary...

The trick is two fold.

  1. You need to set AutoScan=2 in the msdos.sys (no surprise there)
  2. You need to tweak the c:\windows\command\scandisk.ini and change everything from "Prompt" to "Fix" or "Delete".   Running strings on it looked like it ran scandisk with the /CUSTOM option which reads all those sexy options in the scandisk.ini.
