    Running chksdk C: /F /V upon reboot doesn't fully complete in 2004


    Another day...

    I ran chkdsk c: /F /V on 3 three systems which were updated to 2004.

    Upon reboot or booting from a cold start, the routine completes without completion of the boot - the little dotted circle keeps spinning.
    Difficulty in powering off by holding in the button.

    Once restarted, it says "100%" complete and boots fully.

    2 desktops and 1 laptop are involved.

    Bug? Can anyone replicate?

    TIA

    Trying it on my laptop now, 500GB SSD.

    Worked ok for me. Finished chkdsk, rebooted as expected and I'm back to my Desktop.

    Thanks, Rich. Let's see if there are any other comments.
    There has to be a reason for 3 machines to do this after going to 2004.

    Why are you running Chkdsk only for the FAT/FAT32 (/V) and not the full disk(chkdsk C: /r) Compumind?

    I did look at that myself when he first posted . . .

    Chkdsk /? Checks a disk and displays a status report.

    CHKDSK [volume[[path]filename]]] [/F] [/V] [/R] [/X] [/I] [/C] [/L[:size]] [/B]

    volume Specifies the drive letter (followed by a colon), mount point, or volume name.
    filename FAT/FAT32 only: Specifies the files to check for fragmentation.
    /F Fixes errors on the disk.
    /V On FAT/FAT32: Displays the full path and name of every file on the disk.
    /V On NTFS: Displays cleanup messages if any.
    /R Locates bad sectors and recovers readable information (implies /F).
    /L:size NTFS only: Changes the log file size to the specified number
    of kilobytes. If size is not specified, displays current size.
    /X Forces the volume to dismount first if necessary.
    All opened handles to the volume would then be invalid (implies /F).
    /I NTFS only: Performs a less vigorous check of index entries.
    /C NTFS only: Skips checking of cycles within the folder structure.
    /B NTFS only: Re-evaluates bad clusters on the volume (implies /R)

    The /I or /C switch reduces the amount of time required to run Chkdsk by skipping certain checks of the volume.

    Hi Cliff -

    Same issue with those switches, as well. Even NTFS - forgot to mention.

    However, I found this and it might just be the common thread among my 3 systems:

    Yes, all bar the 'Difficulty in powering off by holding in the button' - I had no such problem.

    Chkdsk appears to have completed successfully, it's just the restart that fails to take place. On a chkdsk at boot the log is recorded in C:\System Volume Information as usual. Here's what mine says:

    ...but it never restarts.

    My log is similar in content to yours.

    Some users may not be able to gain access to this log since it is hidden and protected.
    Try first. If no go, here is a fix for that... proceed at your own risk...

    Now I can rule out Norton, thanks.

    Isn't the log in Event viewer?
    I always get it at Windows logs/application then use "Find" chkdsk, and then it shows me the last chkdsk.

    Yes, there too. But for a chkdsk at boot up the event log isn't running yet, so the log is initially written to System Volume Information which is where the Event log picked it up from. Unlike the event log which gets cleared at each feature update, the logs in System Volume Information persist until you reformat the drive.
