    Fast Start-Up in Windows 10

    Does this feature still exist in Windows 10.

    I ask because during the preview builds, I turned this off under Power Plan options to dismount all drives when shutting down to make sure that when I dual booted back into Windows 7, this operating system didn't see a 'dirty bit' & perform a chkdsk.

    I've upgraded Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro & still occasionally boot into the preview build 10240. I now getting disk errors when booting between the 2 builds with disk errors being reported & a chkdsk being performed.

    These leaves a directory entry called 'found.000/found.002' in the reported HD. Is it safe to remove this after taking ownership?

    Is there an option to turn off 'Fast Startup' in the retail version of Windows 10?


    Just found this: Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Although I didn't see the option to turn this off here but used the registry editor to disable.
