    is talking baout how to run chkdsk and cisk cleanup but is only giving
    instructions on how to do these processes in Windows XP.

    appreciated or any ideas wher i can find out this information.

    Hi,

    The processes are exactly the same in Vista as they were in XP. For Disk
    Cleanup, simply type it into the search line and hit <enter>. For chkdsk,
    you can either use the tools tab of the selected drive's properties, or run
    it from an elevated command prompt (type CMD into the search line, then
    right click the program menu entry that appears and choose 'run as
    administrator').

    Hi-
    I am trying to set up Disk Cleanup in the Task Scheduler to run
    automatically for a client.

    I had it down with the requisite switches in XP, but Vista first brings up
    the dialog which asks if I wish to clean just the user's files or all files.

    How do I configure this? I can't find Vista-specific switches anywhere!

    Thanks in advance-
    Julia

    Run sfc /scannow from the command prompt.
