    Win 7

    CHKDSK Scan upon restart.

    Hi All.

    I would appreciate some help on this one if at all possible.

    I have two seperate harddrives installed. On my one drive which is may main one I have a copy of Windows 7.

    My second drive has two partitions, one running Win 7 Pro and the second partition running and copy of Win 10 Pro.

    This is my problem.
    Each time I have booted into Windows 10, upon restart or cold start the computer insists on running a CHKDSK Scan before it allows me to boot into any of the other operating systems. Upon running the CHKDSK it does find some corrupted files on the Win 10 partition which it rectifys automatically. Once these scans are completed the computer boots normally into the other operating systems. This is only appilcable after having booted into Windows 10 and not after having booted into Win 7.

    Any help to try and prevent this from happening or further insight as to why would be appreciated.

    With thanks

    While waiting for some worhtwhile contributions that happen on such a forum as this one, I decided to continue to do some further searching on the net about this issue.

    In the past I have not had much success but this time stumbled across some information about "Fast Startup" and disabling in such a case as this one can resolve the issue. It has also succesfully resolved mine.

    I found some information elsewhere on this forum about disabling the Fast Startup of which I have posted the link below.

    Thank you once again for such a great forum.
