Title: Disk Error Checking at Next Boot Question
Post by: Peter on August 07, 2013, 11:17:07 AM
Hi, There!
I want to know is it CHKDSK [Drive:] /F or CHKDSK [Drive:] /X /F /R which provides 5 stage for checking, not 3 as CHKDSK /F?

Sorry for my poor English!
Greetings!

EDIT: CHKDSK /R = CHKDSK /F

/R will normally do /F as well, but I still put it in lol

/X will tell the drive to dismount, which is fine if your not scanning the c: drive. If you try it will say it cant and would you like to do it at next boot.

SO these will work (I will use D: as an example)

CHKDSK D: /f /r /x
or
CHKDSK D: /f /r
or
CHKDSK D: /r

If you dont use /x and the drive needs dismounted it will ask you if you want to.

Thanks! :)
I made this topic, because when I use Disk Error Checking at Next Boot, I see only 3 stages, not 5.
Are you going to update it?

I only have it check the drive for file system errors not bad sectors.

And that tool only sets the dirty bit flag on the drive so Windows will scan it. :wink:

If I had it check for bad sectors and users didnt know and the scan took hours (Think a 2 TB drive) then I would have some ticked users lol

Besides, on a normal scan if any of the data on the drive is on a bad sector it will see it (Normally) because when it goes to read the data on that sector it wont be able t. The extra steps is where it checks every sector on the drive.
