Windows 8.1: I just ran chkdsk c: /F in an elevated command prompt window. It scheduled a scan at the next reboot, which I then ran.
Compared to Windows 7, the messaging during the scan is very sparse. And at the end it doesn't even report a minimal result, like, "The Disk Scan Found no Errors" or "Errors were found and fixed." You get the idea.
What's going on here with the engineers working on windows 8? I mean, you've got to be kidding.
I suppose that the result may have been put in an event log some where, but I can't find it. The event log system is, itself, very fragmented.
This is so extremely lame. I am VERY, VERY frustrated with windows 8. It truly is Vista 2.0.
If the engineers working on Windows 8 are the same as those working on Windows 9, I fear that it will be Vista 3.0 and I think you know what that will to do Microsoft's image.
Just because Windows 7 that followed Vista 1.0 was a success and a popular OS, you should be careful not to assume that Windows 9 will yield a similar result.
