Cozzu,

Did it mention the name of the recent program you installed?

If not, then see if you may be able to boot to a command prompt at startup (boot) using OPTION TWO in the tutorial, to run chkdsk on the drive from there instead.

Note that the drive letters are not always the same at boot as they are while in Windows.

Hi.
I want to tell Windows to check my data partition and to try to recover info from it (I mean, using /f /r switches) the next time the system boots. For it's not "in use" (if I click on "scan now" in the drive properties it will work, but all my program's instances will go down), I can't do it via the GUI. So I'd like to know what command you use to schedule a full scan of a partition the next time Windows boots (e.g. chkdsk /f /r D: )
I learnt how to mark a drive as "dirty" and schedule it to be checked at boot time here (using METHOD THREE), but I wonder what kind of check it will do. Will it be a regular (/f) check or will it be a full scan, recovering data from bad sectors (/f /r)? If not, how do I schedule it to make a full scan? thank you!

Hello Rookie,

If you like, you could also manually run the command from a command prompt at boot whenever you like. Just be sure to use the correct drive letters since they are not always the same at boot as they are in Windows.

Thanks for replying! ok, How do I find out what's the drive letter for the partition I want to check?

You're welcome.

While in the command prompt at boot, you could type these commands below and press Enter after each one to see what the drive letters are for the volumes. You'll have to go by the label and size of the drive to help know which letter belongs to the one you want to run chkdsk on though.

list volume
exit

Hello Sky90po, and welcome to Seven Forums.

By default, chkdsk saves recovered files in a C:/found.000 folder. The 000 will increase by increments of 1 each time chkdsk is ran and saves recovered files if a previous folder exists.

Look for this folder, or search for Found* instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I suppose it didn't create it then. Usually these recovered files are useless anyways though.
