Windows 7: chckdisk almost at every boot

You'll need to do a clean install. Always better anyway. Sorry.

Just in case this helps anyone else who may encounter this issue. Microsoft customer support suggested two things: 1)A repair using the Windows 7 disk and 2) Performing a disk cleanup.

As part of the disk cleanup, I chose the "Clean up system files," "More Options" and clicked the Clean up button under System Restore and Shadow Copies option. It cleaned quite a bit of data: about 35 gigabytes on my 320 GB drive. Will report back in a week with details on whether this fixed the NTFS error or not.

I am not sure that is the cause of this particular issue.

Nevertheless, neither Partition Magic, nor Acronis Disk Director are compatible with Windows 7. Avoid them.

The best Free partition app. is MT Solutions Partition Wizard:

The best paid partition app. is Paragon Partition Manager:

Install Win7 in partitions created with Acronis Disk Director Suite or other third party software (Partition Magic..etc) causes problems in win7 writing to disk and continually you are forced to do "chkdsk".

Solution: partition and format from you Windows 7 installation disc.

... it has nothing to do with partitioning (at least in my case). I did a clean format/install using the win7 installation CD.

By the way I am still not sure that it will be THE SOLUTION but:

Avira – TechBlog Blog Archive chkdsk in Windows 7
Avira – TechBlog Blog Archive chkdsk issue with Windows 7 – fixed

i.e. it really looks avira. In the meantime I got used to turn avira off everytime I boot down (by disabling all the avira services) and since then I had only 1 checkdisk at all .......

well let's see .....

Suggest you uninstall Avira and try Avast free home, the most lightweight yet effective free AV.

Have put it on over a hundred machines without a single issue or virus.

I'm not certain that it relates to this, but the only time that I have experienced unexpected chkdsk on boot was in XP, but that was because that I had one partition that was not formatted as NTSF. For some reason my FAT32 partition was causing the problem.

EDIT: That was fairly easy to see, because it was the FAT32 volume that it kept wanting to check.

I do not want to be agressive but: I have answered to the same suggestion 100 times. It is a corporate antivir i.e. I can not deinstall it and choose another one!

avira have managed to recreate the chkdsk error in a windows 7 environment and have also released a fix which is due to be included in one of the next updates , there are multiple threads on their forum covering the issue , such as this one

Im pleased they are taking it seriously
