Hello sfwul,

You can run chkdsk in separate command prompt window per drive to be able to run chkdsk on multiple drives simultaneously.

For good order's sake: in my post, 2nd line at the end, I wrote a 'c:' plus a ')' which was confusing as it returned into a smiley, obviously.

what I meant is:
RMB C-drive properties->tab Tool -> [Check now...]
offers users to schedule a chkdsk, so it next reboot it will run the chkdsk.

My idea was then to run it multiple drives - it will take hours, so I would then go on to do something else in the meantime.

But you are right (of course...): the task can be performed running it from multiple CMD sessions.
Didn't of it.

I'm not aware of a way to schedule it to automatically run on multiple drives at boot like that. The only workaround that I know of are the multiple CMD sessions.
