Windows 7: Bug in Windows 7 RTM

Bug in Windows 7 RTM

Quote:
As most of you know, Windows 7 is expected to hit technet and MSDN by August 6th to a much anticipated welcome. However, this particlar issue looks strangely out of place and makes you wonder how exactly this passed through validation:

To Reproduce:
  1. Run an elevated CMD prompt
  2. Run CHKDSK <drive letter:> /r
  3. With task manager open, you should see your memory quickly gobbled away in the chkdsk.exe process until it either stops at or around 90% or it maxes completely out and crashes the computer.

**note, this will only occur if you have second or multiple hard drives, it does not happen on the drive installed with the OS.

No problem. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. If it was easily replicated, it would be a showstopper. Seems like it may just be his hardware, or, as was said earlier, just for attention.

I managed to replicate it. Ran it on C: and it didn't do anything. Ran chkdsk on my D: (2nd hard drive) and up it shot.

3.59GB usage is the highest it got and didn't go above this. I didn't want to wait much longer though incase it did end up crashing my PC.

It's not *that* much of a concern for me. It's not like I'm going to be running chkdsk on my D drive every day, but it would be nice if it got sorted.
