CHKDSK Contradictions

Greetings

I have just changed my system drive to a Crucial MX100 SSD. I restored a saved image to the new drive. Everything booted up OK, etc. When I booted into Windows, I checked the disk and Windows found no errors. Today, I got a message from Action Center suggesting I run Maintenance. The result suggested I run CHKDSK to repair errors. The results of CHKDSK are below:

CHKDSK in Windows:

Windows has finished checking your disk.
Please wait while your computer restarts.

I also ran fsutil to check if my C: drive was dirty. It was not dirty.

Any advice would be most appreciated.

Thanks,
Graham

If you just flashed an image from another hard drive, then that's probably it. Windows detected a partition table (and possibly MBR?) that it wasn't used to. It probably thinks that its still on the old drive and perceives the new drive as a corrupted version of the old one. After all, Windows isn't known for being very smart when it comes to hardware and drivers. If your drive really was corrupted, then great, Windows just fixed it for you. But I somehow doubt that.

If the warnings persist, then you can probably safely ignore them or turn off their notifications in action center. If you haven't already, check device manager to see if the drivers for your new drive are properly installed. If Windows thinks its still on the old drive, then the model name and number of that drive will show up there instead of the new one. Just scan for new hardware, install everything, and you're good to go (but DO NOT delete the old driver, even if scan for new hardware finds nothing, this can cause Windows to not boot).

If this turns out to be an issue with your hard drive (and you really can't know that its not), I hope you kept a copy of that system image . But as I said, its probably okay. It sounds like Windows fixed whatever it found and you can now ignore the warnings.

TL;DR: Basically, if your computer boots consistently, doesn't crash more than once a month or so, and doesn't show any symptoms of an *actual* corrupt disk like disappearing files or inexplicably failed defrags, you're fine, period.
