How to display Errors found and Repairs made CHKDSK


How to display Errors found and Repairs made by the CHKDSK Command
The Chkdsk command is used to verify the integrity of a file system and is capable of correcting discrepancies in system data files. This command has been with us since DOS days and has been modified by Microsoft as required to meet the requirements of new operating and file systems as they evolved.
If you execute the Chkdsk command from a command prompt without using the F (fix) switch, Chkdsk runs in the read-only mode. As Chkdsk runs its tests on the drive, it displays the results of these tests on the monitor screen and the test results remain there for you to read until you close the CMD box.
However there are several drawbacks to running Chkdsk in the read-only mode, especially on an active NTFS volume (usually C:)
1. Chkdsk cannot make any corrections to the drive while in the read-only mode.
2. If Chkdsk encounters more than minor errors, it will not complete all of its tests.
3. If you are running Chkdsk in the read-only mode on the active partition, Chkdsk frequently reports disk corruption and other file system errors which do not exist. This happens when the system modifies the disk during the Chkdsk testing sequence.
Considering the above, there is little to be gained by running Chkdsk in the read-only mode.
You need to run Chkdsk/F at the command prompt to test the drive and to correct any errors found.. As soon as you make this entry the system responds with:
"The type of file system is NTFS. Cannot lock current drive."
"Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)."
After you key in "Y" (followed by enter) and re-boot, the operating system starts to load and you are advised that a disk check has been scheduled and unless you cancel it, Chkdsk/F will start to run in a few seconds. (Actually the file being executed at this time is Autochk.exe). Chkdsk will run through its phases but it only displays the test results on the monitor screen for about 2 seconds before the screen clears and the operating system continues to load!
If problems were found wiith the file system, you will not have time to read any messages regarding what they were or what actions were taken. If corrupted files and/or orphaned files/directories were detected you would most probably like to know about it and other problems found by Chkdsk. So how do you display the errors found and actions taken?
The answer is that since running Chkdsk/F is a system event, the information is recorded in the System Event Log under application events. To read the log, Click on Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Event Viewer and Application. Look for "Winlogon" in the Source column and double click on it. An Event Properties dialog box will open and display the log for you to read..

My computer crashes a lot. How do I fix?


You may run or perform Disk Error Checking(This is for Windows XP SP3):
* Chkdsk (Chkdsk.exe) is a command-line tool that checks volumes for problems. The tool then tries to repair any that it finds. For example, Chkdsk can repair problems related to bad sectors, lost clusters, cross-linked files, and directory errors.

** How to run CHKDSK at the command prompt:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In Open, type cmd, and then press ENTER.
  3. Use one of the following procedures:
  • To run Chkdsk in read-only mode, at the command prompt, type chkdsk, and then press ENTER.
  • To repair errors without scanning the volume for bad sectors, at the command prompt, type chkdsk volume:/f, and then press ENTER.

    Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message: Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)

  • Type Y, and then press ENTER to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.

  • To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information, at the command prompt, type chkdsk volume:/r, and then press ENTER.
  • Once done with chkdsk r, run FIXBOOT and press ENTER.

    Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message: Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)Type Y, and then press ENTER to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.

    Chrome.exe - corrupt disk the file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unuseable. Please run the Chkdsk utility on the volume C:.


    While installing Google Chrome, the installation program detected problems with the file system and wants you to run chkdsk to repair them. Either go to a cmd prompt (or click on Start, Run) and key-in chkdsk /f The /f instructs chkdsk to fix any file system errors it finds as it checks your hard drive, You will receive a message the the disk is currently locked and asking you if you want to run chkdsk the next time the system starts, Respond with Y. Then restart your computer. You will receive a message that a disk check has been scheduled - allow it to proceed. Chkdsk will execute and repair any problems it finds with the file system.

    I have done a monthly backup on my laptop for more than a year, but this time I'm getting an error message "corrupted file system 0x81000008


    Run a check disk on the Drive and select Fix bad sectors.

      Running CHKDSK through the Windows Command Prompt:
    1. Go to the Windows Command Prompt. You can do this by clicking first the Start button and then clicking the Run button. After this, type "cmd" in the Open text box and press Enter.

    2. View the displayed Command Prompt screen.
      If you want CHKDSK to run in read-only mode, type:
      CHKDSK c:
      If you want CHKDSK to fix errors and not to check bad sectors, type:
      CHKDSK c:/f
      and press Enter in the Command Prompt.
      If you want CHKDSK to run thoroughly; that is, fix errors, find bad sectors in your hard drive and recuperate still readable data, type:
      CHKDSK c:/r or
      CHKDSK c:/p and press Enter in the Command Prompt.

    3. Running CHKDSK through My Computer (Windows XP)
    4. 1

      Initialize the properties of the hard drive you want CHKDSK to run. Open My Computer. Right click your mouse on the drive in which you want CHKDSK to run. Click the Properties button and click the Tools tab. In the Error-checking box, click the Check Now button.

    5. 2

      Set up the Check Disk options by checking one or both check boxes displayed. These are labeled "automatically fix file system errors" and "scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors". If you want CHKDSK to run in read-only mode, do not check either box. After this, click the Start button.

    I have tried several times to install vista sp2 and all to no avail .. i installed using windows update and the standalone version and both dont seem to work for me ... the installation seems to go...


    Hi there,

    My collegua had a similar problem, he did go to a computer expert and paid to get a new harddisk, I do not know if it is the right solution for you, but his computer work properly know.

    You can also try to ask a question here :
    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/default.aspx

    For me it sound like that have to do with some drivers that are corrupted, you can try to use chkdsk and see if it is can restore the corrupted files/harddisk. You can use the repair funktion "r" on the setup dvd and then type chkdsk and let it run and then reboot the computer without the dvd disk.

    Hope that helps
    Have a nice day over there
    IF NOT then return here

    Ok, basically nero is asking you to run chkdsk to see if there is any corruption in your system files and is generally a good fix for things like this.

    If you don't know how to run chkdsk, follow the steps below.

    Click Start -> Run

    In the box type cmd, then press enter

    At the commad prompt type cd \, then press enter

    Then type chkdsk /f

    If you are prompted to schedule CHKDSK to run the next time the computer restarts (because CHKDSK may be unable to gain exclusive access to the drive under Windows), type Y then enter

    Type exit

    If you have had to schedule the chkdsk ro run, restart your PC and chkdsk will run whilst your PC is starting up.

    Please let me know if this fixes the issue.
