    if you're trying to use chkdsk it needs to follow with the letter r or f like so CHKDSK /R OR CHKDSK /F
    to get a list of commands for command prompt,because there are too many you better off Googling it

    Many of the commands one can use in Command Prompt go back to the days of DOS/Disk Operating System. An example of how to use switches in chkdsk can be seen by typing chkdsk /? at the command prompt. There's a number of Web pages about the commands found by a Search:

    Some pages aimed at Win10:

    There is a huge article about the command prompt in the new Maximum PC magazine that hit the news stands today.
