It's historical (backwards 'compatible'). In previous versions of Windows you could check now. I'm not sure when it changed (XP, maybe Vista) but it's better to check the drive without anythng running - before Windows loads drivers and services that hit the disk.

The disk is normally checked after the next boot.
