Schedule a CHKDSK on Windows XP

OK so we shouldn't really be using Windows XP but we are so we have to live with it!  Often XP will need a CHKDSK, more often that it should.  So how do you run this on a schedule for the C: partition if it needs you to confirm that the partition is locked?  Well its actually really simple but doesn't always jump to mind.

echo y | chkdsk c: /r
Using ECHO you can send the Y to the command and then schedule this using AT or Task Scheduler.
