Depends on the results of the chkdsk. If it has to repair a lot of records, then something is wrong with your disk.

The results of the chkdsk - everything is OK.
But when I reboot/restart the computer, the chkdsk starts and checking again.

Which drive is triggering the Disk Check?

Unplug all other drives to run the maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan.

If in doubt test them all. For drives without scans use Seatools CD. For SSD, use the manufacturer's testing tool on its Support Downloads web page.

If still under one year warranty contact the manufacturer's tech-support to help you test the drive for possible RMA. A drive which continually triggers disk check is likely faulty.

Did you unplug the other drives to determine this with certainty?

I downloaded Samsung Magician, see screenshot. It shows that:

1. AHCI mode is Activated. AHCI mode is ON
2. SATA Interface - SATA 6GB/s (SATA 3) Connected
3. OS Optimization - Not Configured. Your OS is currently optimized for use with an HDD...
When I go to the OS Optimization page, it said: Current status: Not Configured. Your OS is currently optimized for use with an HDD.

I'll attach the other pages.
On the Over Provisioning page, it said:
Note: Using a RAW partition may damage your data. OP can be set or cleared only for the last accessible partition.
and also:
Volume may be corrupted. Use 'Chkdsk' to fix the corruption problem and then try again.

Please tell me what to do.

I'd apply all optimizations on the 0S optimizations page to see if that helps.

Did you find the drive testing tool? Check for firmware update and do the performance test above to see if that is sufficient.

No, there are no SSD drive listed under the Samsung.

I applied all optimizations (see the screenshot), after that PC rebooted and "chkdsk' was activated again ... and nothing
Over Provisioning page remains the same.

Firmware: This is the latest firmware (see the firmware screenshot in my previous post #835).
The Performance Benchmark screenshot is attached.

Re: Over Provisioning page.
I've noticed that when Over Provisioning page is loading it's showing as in the screenshot below, and after a few seconds changed as in my previous post.

It suggests to set a small partition for SSD controller.
