Windows 7: Create a .txt file of the results after running chkdsk!

Create a .txt file of the results after running chkdsk!

Is there any way of extracting the results/details [command line/batch file, not PowerShell] of a chkdsk run that can be saved as a .txt file on the desktop.

I know that it can be viewed in Event Viewer [wininit] etc which is not what I want. I want to extract the results/details and save it as a .txt file on the desktop.

I don't want to go to Event Viewer [Actions > Save All Events As > .txt Format > Save etc] and then save a .txt file from there either!

Thanks in advance.

Hello Paul Black,

If you want CHKDSK results from the command line, then you can redirect the output to a text file when you execute the CHKDSK command. Like so:
chkdsk H: > C:\users\user1\desktop\chkdsk_report.txt

Hi Sir,
Greets,
I use this way to make a text file of the results shown in command prompts :

Create a .txt file of the results after running chkdsk!-command-prompt-capture.png

So, What we need to do is :
1. Click the command prompt icon on the left top of any command prompt window.
2. When you click it will open a menu, choose EDIT & select Select All, Mark as you want.
3. Then click Ctrl + C to copy it to the clip board.
4. Open a text file, paste the matter & save the file.
That's All!

Thanks & Regards. ...

Hi iko 22,
Thanks for the tip Sir!

chkdsk H: > C:\users\user1\desktop\chkdsk_report.txt

Will it work for every such command ?

Thanks & Regards. ...

I had tried that yesterday [chkdsk C: /R > C:\chkdsk.txt] but for some reason it didn't work!

I think it does work with every command that produces a text output.

You have to specify a location for chkdsk.txt where you have write permissions.

This in itself is quite a find! Thank you for sharing these helpful EDIT commands at the CMD Prompt!

The reason it failed, obviously now thinking about it, is because there is no way to incorporate the extra parameter [/R] when creating the .txt file. This is because it invokes a restart which wipes out the latter part of the command [> C:\chkdsk.txt].


The output is not pretty but all the information/results are there!
I will have a play around with formatting the output into one column tomorrow instead of rows!
