Windows 10: check disc starting to appear at bootup startup ?

  1.    10 Dec 2017 #1

    check disc starting to appear at bootup startup ?

    I'm running a Crucial SSD. The last couple of days I have noticed on start up that check disc runs checking my system drive.
    I have tried running check disc manually, but nothing found. I also have the Crucial Storage Executive software that tells me everything is fine.

    I guess to be safe I should start copying files that I want just in case.

    I don't suppose that others are having a similar issue?

    P.S. now that I think about it I have noticed that my system is starting to experience waking up from sleep.

    Hey smalltown,
    Could be the dirty bit has gotten set. You can check it by doing the following ...

    Open Command Prompt as Admin
    chkntfs c: (check dirty bit)
    chkntfs /x c: (clear dirty bit)

    Reboot PC and hopefully check disk won't run.

    Note: "c:" assumes that it c: is is your SSD ... Change if necessary.

    Eagle51 I thought for a moment it was the "go find me a left handed screwdriver" game.
    But I checked online, and you weren't pulling my leg.

    I tried it and C: is not dirty.

    CHKDSK does not run every time.

    Thanks never heard of that command before.

    @Eagle51 -

    I may be a little dense but it's not clear to me (how that article is worded) whether "chkntfs /x c:" is simply clearing the dirty bit or if it's permanently disabling the autocheck. I'm not sure of its advisability if it's the latter... Any further take on this?

    Perhaps that is only a one time exclusion?

    There's a TF tutorial on this kind of thing at Cancel a Scheduled Chkdsk at Boot in Windows 10

    I wonder if "chkntfs /d" (option 4 in the tutorial) is in order to set all back to default?

    smalltown .... Sorry, I made the wrong assumption, that chkdsk was running on every startup and the dirty bit being set as one possible cause.

    Perhaps that is only a one time exclusion?
    No, it excludes a drive from being checked on startup.
    I wonder if "chkntfs /d" (option 4 in the tutorial) is in order to set all back to default?
    Yes, you should set it back to default.

    Note: There a couple page in that link I posted. I knew there had to be tutorial here, but I missed when I searched
