    Disk Checking at Startup


    Hi Guys,

    I have been using Windows 10 for a while now with no issues, I currently have three HDD's installed in the PC, one that's used to boot windows, a secondary 250GB for extra storage and a 1TB drive to store\stream movies from.

    I was aware my 1TB HDD was not 100% as it came out of a faulty NAS drive, but after a full format it worked perfectly for over a year with Windows 7, but after the 10 upgrade it would completely disappear after a certain period of time, this was resolved by changing the power options to stop Windows turning off the disk.

    Now i'm faced with Windows trying to perform a repair on the hard drive at boot, which takes ages to complete and boot windows, then after a restart it does the same which is frustrating.

    Question is how do i turn off this disk checking feature in Windows 10?

    For the mean time i have unplugged the HDD and all is working as normal, but obviously i would like to be able to use it and use other software to check the disk.

    Thanks in advance!

    RE : Now i'm faced with Windows trying to perform a repair on the hard drive at boot. Question is how do i turn off this disk checking feature in Windows 10?

    Suggestion only :
    It works in Win 8/8.1. I am relatively certain it will work in Win 10, but I cannot vouch for it. I have never tried it on my Win 10 machines.

    To turn off disk check at start up.............................
    Open elevated command prompt > type chkntfs /x c:

    Note : c: is the drive letter.
