Windows 7: windows 7 chkdsk won't run on c: drive on startup, sfc produces error

windows 7 chkdsk won't run on c: drive on startup, sfc produces error

I'm trying to run chkdsk on my C: drive to resolve file allocation errors. I tell it to fix errors and recover bad sectors. It says the disk is in use, so I schedule it to run on next startup, but it never runs. I've tried booting in safe mode and running chkdsk /r with the same result - disk in use, won't run on next restart.

I've also tried running sfc /scannow to fix any system issues. It gets to 17% then errors out with STATUS_FILE_CORRUPT_ERROR #1561687# from Windows::Rtl::SystemImplementation:irectFileSystemProvider::SysCreateFile.

Are there any hotfixes or possible remedies that may not have mentioned on other similar threads? Thank you.

Boot to "recovery environment" or Advanced Boot Options . Select "repair your computer". Select "command prompt"

System Recovery Options



In command prompt:
Code:
DIR  C:\
DIR  D:\
DIR  E:\
What is drive letter of what you think is the C drive? Assume it's called D now in recovery environment. Let's chkdsk D
Code:
chkdsk/f  D:
Problems found, are they fixed? Run the command again to be sure.
Now check for bad sectors as well.

Code:
chkdsk/r  D:
Any errors... and repaired? the command can take hours to complete. Be patient!

Did you backup your important files already? ... maybe your disk is dying

As I stated in my question, I already did these things. Because it is the C: drive, it is always "in use". Are there any OTHER suggestions? Thank you.

The startup repair tool on the system recovery options finally repaired the disk and system problems. Thank you for your suggestion.
