I don't think any changes are needed, you can't run everything.
just suspend scan disk until you stop running desgui, make a choice.
if you have it write to disk every ten minutes it will only help those
people who run scan disk where it finish in ten minutes, what if it takes
11 or more ?
Just don't run scan disk, or have it time out if it can't complete in a
given amount of time.
