Windows 7: Check Disk - Reset

Hello. I did the option you listed to disable chkdisk on c: (autocheck autochk /k:C *)
It worked, but I want to make sure that just didn't override any underlying problem. Is there any further analysis I should do on this that you would recommend?

Hello hoothoryna, and welcome to Eight Forums.

No worries. This will just stop chkdsk from running for this instant. If something triggers it to run again, it still will. If it does get triggered to run again, then it would be best to let it run and finish.

Once again a very handy tutorial Shawn.

Some how I got check disk at a cold boot and it wouldn't go away without running it. I don't know how it got set to do the check disk in the first place. It's is set to NO now.

If you could give me some idea how it got set to do the check disk in the first place I would be thankful.
What goofy thing could I have done?

It could of happened if SMART detected an issue the HDD, and automatically scheduled to run a check disk to be safe.

Usually it's best to let check disk run. If you keep getting check disk to run at startup even after running it, then you might scan your HDD with SeaTools to see if it passes it.

Thanks Shawn.

I did let check disk run and it didn't find any problems. It was on one of my Intel SSD's.
I also run Intel's SSD Tool box and it didn't find any problems.
SFC /SCANNOW also has no problems.
I guess I will just wait and see if anything pops up again.

I'm all ears if you think of anything else.

A little update.
Check Disk said it found nothing I don't believe it.
My problem I was having with long shutdowns is now gone after using Check Disk. It fixed something and keeping a secret.

I have been looking for this problem for over a week. Shutdowns are back to 3 to 4 sec.

Interesting. You could check the event log below to see if it may have anything else in it.

Jack,

What options did you run on Check Disk?
I have a very old WD external drive that goes south every once in a while. The status in DskMgr looks fine, but I can't write to the disk. If I rescan in DskMgr, the status goes to offline one time and read-only other times (can't figure out what it wants to be offline or read only). Looking at Diskpart the dirty bit is clean and the status might or might not be correct.

I just change the read only status no matter what it tells me. Sometimes that's enough.

Other times, I run Check Disk. The most success I have is with no options selected - a read only run of Disk Check.
Having either fix errors, check for bad areas, or both selected does not solve the issue with this particular drive.

Once I get past this, the disk can run for weeks or months without issue. I can disconnect and reconnect it (safely!) without issue.
But every once in a while - I have to go through the motions. Smart is fine. I can't get to the hidden smart area of the disk to see if there is any corruption there. The disk has been wiped (clean all) in a few attempts to correct this over the years.

You're right though, there's a bit or some communication between the OS and drive firmware that chkdsk flips or resolves (temporarily in my case).

Short version: try Check Disk with no options (read only scan)

See what CrystalDiskInfo tells you, I know about spinners, I'm not sure what smart tells you about an SSD.

Have you checked for any firmware updates for the SSD (they're rare)
