Harddisk needs to be checked RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Suddenly, one of my Windows 2012 R2 VMs has started showing the message "One of your hard disks needs to be checked for consistency". I am currently skipping the check. How can i check where is the problem as this is a virtual machine and the attached VHDs are SAN hard disks?

  • You start by allowing the VM's disk check to complete. Inconsistency in the guest's file system does not necessarily mean a physical disk problem.
