    Inconsistent error warnings: Errors detected, yet no errors detected

    My laptop has suddenly started running CHKDSK during startup. After it completes and finishes booting I go to Properties > Tools > Error Checking of my C drive and click “Check”. It says errors were found on this drive and to repair drive now to prevent data loss. I click to run it, the system reboots, I see the prompt to cancel CHKDSK by pressing any key, let it run, the screen remains blank with just the little spinning dots. It finishes (in less than a minute, which is faster than it usually takes) and loads to desktop. I check the C drive properties again and it still says there are errors and to repair.

    Running CHKDSK from CMD prompt I get “Windows has scanned the file system and found no problems. No further action is required.” Running a 3rd-party disk checker (Disk Doctor, Tune-Up Utilities) also reports no errors. Yet the properties dialog continues to warn that there are errors.

    I can’t be certain when this started. Just noticed this yesterday when I booted up (I don’t usually stick around and watch the computer boot). Windows has all the latest updates/patches. This is an HP ENVY laptop that came with Windows 10 pre-installed.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I believe I solved it.

    I booted into the recovery menu and then advanced options. I chose Command Prompt then ran the command CHKDSK C: /F

    At Stage 3 it found errors and repaired them:
    Errors in MFT bitmap attribute
    Errors in volume bitmap

    Afterwards, booting up and checking the drive status it now reports no errors finally. I guess the CHKDSK procedure didn't detect these errors when running during bootup. The other disk scanners I tried didn't pick them up either. This seems to have fixed it.
