Windows 7: Check Disk Force Dismount

Check Disk Force Dismount

Hello... i have been wondering .. i have 2 HDs installed in my PC... one which is labeled C: is for the system while the other which is labeled D: is for personal files e.g. documents, pictures, music and etc...

So once in a while i usually do Chkdsk and defragmentation for both HDs and there is this one thing that always bothers me.. when i tick both options to run Check Disk on drive D: (Only happens on secondary drive) ... it asked me to "force dismount" ... usually i just clicked cancel and then accept the next popup that will ask about "Schedule Scan Disk"... and everything is running fine... Checkdisk will be run perfectly the next time i restart my PC on both drives...

my main question is, the next time it asks, should i just click force dismount or do as what i mentioned above? is it safe to dismount? what does it do actually? please give suggestions thank you

What he needs is just a suggestion if he should check force dismount or not . He know about chkdsk but not about force dismounting .

Read the question carefully

Yes I have read the question but if you read this link. It tells you why exactly it asks for dismount. And what you should do. We are all just helping people and this information on the link i think will make him understand better. Like it tells you sort of in your link but for people who might find it a bit hard to understand i think the link explains well

Yes the answer is in your post but like you said "read the question carefully" He asks what exactly does it do also as is it safe to do so and within that between our two post we answered his question. You answered is it safe to do so, as i answered what it does
