  • Hi,

     

    Can you boot into system now? If not, can you boot into Safe Mode?

     

    If so, you could click on Start then Run , type cmd and press Enter . Next type fsutil dirty query x: where x: is your boot drive. This command will tell you if this drive is dirty.

     

    Next, type chkntfs /x c:. Now manually reboot your computer, what is the result?

  • I just tried this dirty query x and mine is saying cannot find the specified file and then i tried the next one and it says the system cannot find the drive specified.

    what i was trying to do was siilar to what the above post is about CHKDSK and it was also in read mode only and have tried to see if there was a way to get a differant mode to do a full check of C:NTFS. Is F tripping up the full check.

    I opted out of CHKDSK/F on next restart. because of above.


    I did a Admin Command prompt of C: dirty query and it said that it was not dirty.
