Windows 7: Check Disk - Reset

I can't believe that information in a post like this is not provided on how to BOTH turn on and turn off chkdsk running. Why provide information for ONLY one thing, when it is so easy to provide information on both things (and the information on what registry settings need to be changed are already included here), so it should be very easy to provide information on both turning on and turning off the chkdsk running at startup and let people make their own choice on what they prefer.

I don't mean to be offensive, I'm autistic and autistic people tend to say the truth as they see it.

Hello Staragox,

Since it's a separate function, I like to keep it in a separate tutorial.

Sorry fr the bump but can I add other drives in this? I have multi HDDs and it wants to do a disk check on all three.

So can I have:

autocheck autochk /k:C *
autocheck autochk /k:d *
autocheck autochk /k:E *

It's also worth noting in an elevated command prompt I ran:

chkntfs /x c: d: e: and when I went into the RegEdit the /k was already added to C.

You could use the command below to not run check disk at boot for any drive.

autocheck autochk *

Well I did the following:

autocheck autochk /k:C *
autocheck autochk /k:d *
autocheck autochk /k:E *

Now it doesn't ask to do a check on any disks but it still wants to run a check on the following:

Checking file system on \\?\volume{3b332ccb-1ca2-11e9-a00b-806e6f6e6963}

This is the only thing trying to get a disk check now. So if I do:

autocheck autochk *

it will prevent any and all disk checks including the volume above?

It should unless something is tripping Smart to perform a check.

By doing the autocheck autochk * it disabled disk checking on all lettered drives. But it still wants to check on

\\?\volume{3b332ccb-1ca2-11e9-a00b-806e6f6e6963}

I read somewhere it's because these aren't assigned a drive letter. This installation is fresh out the box so it shouldn't be doing that.

If you let it run the check, does it stop wanting to at the next boot?
