Windows 10: running chkdsk or chkntfs in windows 10 Solved

    running chkdsk or chkntfs in windows 10

    Scanning the hard disk drivers can be done from windows, but I'm curious about bizarre responses to trying to check disk from cmd windows (just for info, not fix).
    chkdsk yields:
    Access Denied as you do not have sufficient privileges.
    You have to invoke this utility running in elevated mode.
    and chkntfs yields:
    Cannot query state of drive X:
    can anyone explain?
    thank you

    You have to run it from a Command Prompt (Admin) - "Run as Administrator" Command Prompt. You are trying to run it from a standard Command Prompt which does not have administrator privileges.
