Welcome to the forum. MS did that for you when windows starts it writes a dirty bit to the drive when it shuts down correct it clears that bit if it crashes the dirty bit is still set so windows then run chkdsk. If that doesnt happen you could run the util to check dirty bit and if dirty run chkdsk Manually Reset or Clear Dirty Bit in Windows without using CHKDSK • Raymond.CC
