Windows 7: CHKDSK Keeps Wanting To Run at Every Boot

09 Aug 2015   #11

Win7 Pro 32-bit, Win8 Pro 32-bit

What is most likely causing the problem (I know because this happened to me!) is that Win10 has something called FastStartup turned ON by default. That means when you shut down Win10, any volumes you were accessing at the time remain MOUNTED! Thus, when you go back into Win7, any attempt to access those volumes will result in filesystem corruption.

What fixed it for me was going into Win10 and disabling FastStartup. The linked Win10 Forums page shows you how to do this: Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

That certainly explains it, Mark. Does the same setting apply in Win 8.1?
