Windows 10: random directory display Solved

  1.    01 Jun 2016 #1

    random directory display

    Each time event Id98 [Ntfs (Microsoft-Windows-Ntfs)] triggers, directory of external disk (E:\) is displaying on the screen. I would like to know how to suppress this display.
    System files are ok with sfc /scannow
    Thank you for your help

    You need to figure out what is triggering the event. Look in Task Scheduler and see what is shown there.
    Click Start, type sched and select Task Scheduler to get there.

    Some good info here, may or may not apply though: [SOLVED] Event ID: 98. Volume needs to be taken offline to perform a full chkdsk. - Windows Server - Spiceworks

    Thank you for your reply.
    Here is the event description I get (sorry, it's in french)

    Nom du journal :System

    ID de l’événement :98
    Catégorie de la tâche :Aucun
    Niveau : Information
    Mots clés : (2)
    Utilisateur : Système
    Ordinateur : Pc-Triskell
    Description :
    Volume E: (\Device\HarddiskVolume19) est sain. Aucune action n’est nécessaire.
    XML de l’événement :
    <Event xmlns="">
    <Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-Ntfs" Guid="{3FF37A1C-A68D-4D6E-8C9B-F79E8B16C482}" />
    <TimeCreated SystemTime="2016-06-02T08:13:42.879684300Z" />
    <Correlation />
    <Execution ProcessID="4" ThreadID="9596" />

    I have done a "chkdsk" control for C: and E: disks. There is no problem.
    Thank you

    Look through Task Scheduler qas I mentioned, see if anything in there could be triggering this, any kind of disk activity.

    You said you ran chkdsk for C: and E:. How exactly did you do this? Please explain for both drives, thanks.

    The Eventid 98 is: Volume E: ( \ Device \ HarddiskVolume19 ) is healthy. No action is required.

    Look for scheduled task having to do with Disk maintenance or checking.

    In fact, my problem came from USB disk interface which was given up the ghost (random connexion and disconnexion).
    Thank you for your replies
