Windows 7: Is There A CHKDSK Report?

Is There A CHKDSK Report?

I am using Windows 7 Professional 64 bit on 3 PC's. After I run CHKDSK on my drives I would like to know if there were any problems found or fixed. Is there a report available that gives this kind of information?

I always choose "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors" and I click both "Automatically fix file system errors" and "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors".

Thanks, Bill

Got this by googling your question.

After the check disk runs and the computer restarts, perform the following.

1. Open Control Panel / Administrative Tools and select the Event Viewer.

2. In the Event Viewer Double Click the Windows Logs in the left side menu to expand.

3. Select the Application log.

4. Right Click the Application log and select Find.

5. Type wininit in the box and click Find Next.

6. In the center section click the Source/wininit line that is found.

In the lower section, you will see the complete log for the latest Check Disk.

Hope this is what you were looking for.
Please post back if you need more help.
