How to "TURN ON" Windows 7 Chkdsk Running at Every Reboot

I did a search on the forums here, and couldn't find any posts on how to turn on chkdsk running on reboot in Windows 7 and also specifying which drives for it to run on. I want the command prompt "chkdsk /f" itself to run. I want to make sure it is the command prompt "chkdsk /f". I read something about drive consistency check, but don't think that is the command prompt "chkdsk /f".

Also I really believe the tutorial on how to turn off chkdsk running on reboot should be updated to include BOTH how to turn on and turn off chkdsk running on reboot in Windows 7. I'm autistic and don't mean to be offensive since autistic people tend to be more blunt. But think about it. The tutorial references registry settings, the same registry settings that you would have to change to both turn it on or turn it off. So is there any possible reason, not to include both sets of information and give people the choice to decide what they prefer? Also why require two different posts, one to turn it on and one to turn it off, when that information is easily enough included in the same tutorial?

In the meantime can someone help me here? I want to turn on "chkdsk /f" running on reboot and also want to know how to choose which drives (partitions) that it runs on?

Sincerely Yours,

From a CMD prompt type chkdsk c: /f it should say disk locked test on restart say yes you can also do a register entry or use fsutil to set the dirty bit which will force it. You can use same for other drives but it may ask to un mount them and then run

I want to set it so that "chkdsk /f" runs on every reboot, so the key word is "every". Also I wanted to run it, on a couple different drives / partitions and also have it run on those drives / partitions on every reboot. How would I do that?

I am reading about fsutil on Microsoft's site. I should be able to use that to do it, if I create a batch file with administrator rights (which requires a third party program, I believe) and put that in the startup folder.

But what registry setting changes could I make to specify which drives / partitions I want to be checked with "chkdsk /f" on every reboot? Anyone know?

Sincerely Yours,

Running a check on every boot on all drives could mean it take hours to boot if they are big drives



In regedit, navigate to the location below. (see screenshots below)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
