    Huh? You would of course check the volumes during system initialization; all you need to do is check if the volume has seen any writes after the time of "shutdown". On an NTFS volume that's trivial to do and will only take microseconds, literally. All they need to do is do it...
    Details please. My statements came from experience as an amateur programmer.

    Well-known problem starting at Windows 8. "Fast Startup" is modified hibernation (without user session) so it leaves disk volumes/filesystems in Dirty Shutdown state (does not dismount them) after "shutdown". Much worse, FCU re-enables this "feature" without notifying users.

    You access the USN change journal using functionality analogous to fsutil's USN journal query functions.
    See here for a brief overview of the architecture of Change Journal records on NTFS volumes. More details on how to work with Change Journal records are here.

    Do you have experience with Windows systems-level programming if I may ask?
