Every time I turn on my PC Windows XP pro SP1 begins the disk check.

I have only 2 80GB physical HD's aside from the OS HD.
This 2 HD are divided in 7 Logical HD's each.
The partitions are about the same size in the 2 HD's.

How can I get rid of this check...I hate to wait and press cancel all the time..

Copy your thread title and paste it in this website and you should be set.

What file system are you using? FAT or NTFS?

If it's FAT, a chkdsk will run everytime you shut down improperly. If it's NTFS, chances are there's something wrong with the hard drive... or it just may need a format.

maybe this is called by a software.
i have installed system mechanic which does such thinks
on startup in schedule time even i did not understand when.or how to deactivate that,although i uninstall the aplication the tasks are stilll there.
go to
Administrative Tools/services
and check if there is enabled a task like disk check or similar
if yes stop that service.

i'd think there's something up with your C parition or main system drive
do a full check disk with thorough scan to see what comes up, maybe bad sectors or something

Nothing helped to resolved the problem (probably I didn't do it right).

Anyways I think I will re-format the 2 HD's and see if that helps.
I am lucky that the problem is NOT in my OS HD.

Thanks guys for your help.
