I have recently installed Windows 10 and I am now having extreme difficulty updating my Nuvi2597LMT
Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
Can you do the following please
Press the windows key + X and click on Command Prompt (admin)
A black window will open.
Type in it
sfc /scannow
press enter and when it has completed, type in
chkdsk /r
Press enter.
It will give a message "the type of the file system is NTFS cannot lock current drive.
chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts y/n" Say Y, press enter and restart the computer.
Please note, while this normally only takes 10 minutes to run, it can take at times number of hours if windows encounters many issues. If this is occurring it is critical to let this complete as it means you have corruption on the hard drive that it needs to fix. Even if it looks like the scan is not progressing, it is, please just let it run to completion. Windows will then start when it has.
Then try to do the update.
Let me know the results please

Hi RichieMe

I have carried out the actions described above, unfortunately to no avail.

I believe it is being blocked for some reason.

Ok, can you give the complete message it gives please when it fails?

Richie Hi,

Thank you for your endeavours but I think we are flogging a dead horse here.

I believe I will have to consider a new PC.

Thank you again.
