    Is this false CHKDSK reporting?


    Hi all -

    I open an administrative command window on W10 Pro and type chkdsk c: /F /V so that chkdsk can run on the boot volume upon restart. Drive C: is an SSD.
    Upon reboot, chkdsk is invoked and I notice this:

    Note the bottom line in the picture - Scanning and Repairing Drive.

    Interestingly, none of my other SSD/Disk tools pick up any problem. I'm able to replicate this again and again. Can you?

    I don't see any "verbose" output, unless I just run chkdsk /V or chkdsk c: /scan in a administrative command window.
    The output there is perfectly clean.

    Is this a false positive - that is, the filesystem is just fine? Or is there a "bug" in the way W10 is reporting chkdsk upon boot, unmounted.

    Please check and let me know.

    Many thanks.

    Hey Brian,

    No worries. It's a standard message. I see the same like in the example screenshot below.

    Thanks, Shawn.
    I never would have found this without you, lol!

    It is strange, though. Is there any way to get the verbose output upon restart?

    I agree. It would be better if "repairing" was left out unless it was actually repairing.

    It's a simple fix for Microsoft. Maybe I'll suggest it.
    What about the enabling the verbose output on restart?

    It appears verbose only works on FAT/FAT32 drives.

    No, but the results of a Chkdsk at boot seem to be stored in System Volume Information. Option Two in this tutorial should let you read the latest one.

    Read Chkdsk Log in Event Viewer in Windows 10 | Tutorials

    Alternatively, TreeSize Free run as Administrator let's you explore 'System Volume Information' to read and/or copy the Chkdsk.log text file(s).
