chkdsk failure primary partition

Hi

I noticed this problem when I tried to delete something off the drive, then I tried to run an antivirus scan and it gave me an error if incapacity to delete viruses due to a dirty disk and that I should run chkdsk.

So I right clock on the drive and attempt check now. It tells me that it must first dismount the drive before it can do so and asks if I would like to force a dismount. To which I respond yes. Then, the window disappears and I hear no word or see no signs of any chkdsk happening. Naturally I reboot the terminal expecting fire-works and chemistry, but get greeted by the sound of windows starting up again.

I have tried the administrator driven command prompt in this sequence. C:\Windows\System32>chkdsk x:/f
response:
The type of file system is exFAT.
Volume Serial Number is 2C7E-22C5

C:\Windows\System32>
then:
C:\Windows\System32>chkdsk x:/r
response:
The type of the file system is exFAT.

Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Chkdsk May run if this volume is dismounted first. ALL OPENED HANDLES TO THIS VOLUME WOULD THEN BE INVALID. Would you like to force a dismount on this volume? <Y/N>
response:
Volume dismounted. ALL opened handles to this volume are now invalid.
Volume Serial Number is 2C7E-22C5

C:\Windows\System32>
then:
C:\Windows\System32>chkdsk x:/r
response:
The type of file system is exFAT.
Volume Serial Number is 2C7E-22C5

C:\Windows\System32>
then:
C:\Windows\System32>chkdsk x:/x
response:
The type of file system is exFAT.
Volume Serial Number is 2C7E-22C5

C:\Windows\System32>
So:
C:\Windows\System32>x:

X:\>
X:\>chkdsk
response:
The type of file system is exFAT.
This volume is in use by another process. Chkdsk might report errors when no corruption is present.
Volume Serial Number is 2C7E-22C5

X:\>
So:
X:\>chkdsk x:/x
response:
The type of file system is exFAT.
Cannot lock current drive.
Volume dismounted. ALL opened handles to this volume are now invalid.
Volume Serial Number is 2C7E-22C5

X:\>
So:
X:\>chkdsk
response
The type of file system is exFAT.
This volume is in use by another process. Chkdsk might report errors when no corruption is present.
Volume Serial Number is 2C7E-22C5

X:\>

Hello betterinblue and welcome to Seven Forums.

Have you tried running check disk from GUI rather than command prompt? Same results?

Disk Check

Computer may now have damaged or corrupt system files. Try running system file checker scan from elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Tried it in the gui. It says it needs to dismount and does nothing more from there. Still no luck
