    Full format log location (event viewer)

    Hi, i did a full format (not quick format) for my 3TB HD, which took so long, so i went to sleep. When i got up it had no report whatsoever. I need to see the log/report (for bad sector etc), so i check the event viewer. There's no event for that.

    I already checked Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

    I rarely do full format, but when i do i expect to see the result I know i should've done quick format and chkdsk instead

    But now that i did it, can you help me where is the report for full format i just did?

    Did you run a Check Disk after formatting?
    If you did, does the Check Disk report show any problems?
    If you didn't, can you run a Check Disk and see the report?

    Might help if you post a screen print of your Disk Management.

    I did not run chkdsk after formatting because in my understanding (Microsoft article) full format means formatting and scanning and fixing for bad sector. So basically full format is quick format + chkdsk.

    I can do check disk later and have a report from it, but it will take long and defeat my purpose of asking. Windows provide the mean of full format so logically there's a report for that :) and i plan to do the same method in the future

    If this feature indeed doesn't have any report/log whatsoever, then i will not do full format in the future.

    PS: the HD i formatted is the F (Lannister)
