Well, I already know that defrag makes it worse. I decided I am not going to run it just to be safe.

I realize this thread is ancient, but it did pop up high in a Google search for "chkdsk on SSD", so I thought I'd add my two cents...

A couple of days ago, upon waking from sleep, my HP/Compaq laptop threw an error message in the Systray that Windows could not identify a device connected to the SATA controller...rebooting ended up in a BSOD when Windows 7 started to load, so I removed the DC power supply & battery, pressed the power button for 20-30 seconds, then re-inserted battery & charger...then again powered the laptop.

Windows Startup Repair offered to run, so I accepted, but it quickly decided it could not detect or repair any problem(s), so I let it start Windows normally & was relieved to see my Desktop after only a short delay.

I'd installed my Crucial BX100 250GB SSD about 8 months ago to replace a failing 3-year-old Hitachi spinner the laptop shipped with -- I figured the BX100 was now following suit.

So I then downloaded & installed Crucial's "Storage Executive" SSD management software, which is a web browser-based utility which oddly seems to run on Java...wow, Java in 2016?

After allowing for a reboot so the utility would fully recognize the drive, Storage Executive reports my BX100 is "in good health", it has the latest firmware, & though SMART monitoring will only open correctly sporadically (SE sometimes reports: "Drive Drive0 details cannot be retrieved at this time.
Reason: Not a valid / supported drive) when SMART DOES open, I see no red flags...no readings look bad or even marginal...

So, looong story short, I don't know yet whether the drive is pooping out or it was some transient glitch -- it could even be my motherboard's SATA controller, who knows?

Getting back to chkdsk...after the SATA failure, the laptop was acting a bit strangely, lagging, slow in opening applications, so I figured maybe try chkdsk...below is the Wininit report from that run of chkdsk:

I think this answers whether chkdsk can be useful with an SSD drive (yes, only the "f" (fix file system errors) flag, not the "r" (scan & repair all sectors) flag or checkbox enabled)...

And yeah, it's wait & see whether the Crucial drive is going bad, that's an awful big bunch of screw-ups in the above report, but for now the drive & Windows are behaving normally again...it NEEDED the Check Disk...& so much for "automatic, on-board" error detection & correction (notice chkdsk marked two clusters as bad)...and the BX100 is a well-regarded, fairly modern design...

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.
