Windows 7: Chkdsk

Chkdsk

I can make a bootable thumb drive as descibed on this site but it does not include a chkdsk utility. All the versions I have found on the Web do not support NTFS.

Can you show me where to find the version of chkdsk that is built into Win7 that will run with NTFS?

Thanks.

C:\Windows\system32\chkdsk.exe

But it has lots of dependencies so I don't know if it runs from a bootable flash drive. You could create a Windows 7 install flash drive then boot it to the Recovery Console, Command Prompt and run chkdsk from there.

Just select Windows 7 from the drop down box and off you go.

Thanks for your ideas, however, C:\Windows\system32\chkdsk.exe does not run under DOS.
Looking at 'Easy as 1 2 3' I can find only Linux stuff, not Win7.
I tried the Freeware 'checkdsik', it will run under Win 7 but not under DOS.

Thanks anyway.

You click the drop down and scroll all the way to the bottom, Windows 7 is there, I've used it.

Sorry, maybe I am thick, but can't I find any drop-down box that leads to Win 7, or are you referring to the app. 'Windows 7 in a box'?
