ChkDsk false Information Windows 7 Utlimate RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am still chasing for a solution to a problem that has recently occurred with my system. I did check similar reports in older threads but found no solution

    If I check my system disk from a command prompt using fsutil the report is "NOT dirty". If I run chkdsk /f and then reboot check disk runs and reports that it has found a number of missing logs and placed them in a directory file viz

    "Recovering orphaned file chkdsk 2011072194533.log (68218) into directory file 68197" and around ten similar  orphans in to the same df.


    After the Windows boot I cannot find any signs of this recovery.


    Recently in another forum I saw a report of similar problems from users with Asus CrossHair mother board and "Revo SATA disks"

    I do not know what "Revo disks" are but I when using Win XP I had the same disk on a CrossHair motherboard before upgrading to Windows 7 and new motherboard below;

    manufacturer ASUSTeK Computer INC.
    Model P6T
    Chipset Vendor Intel, Chipset Model X58, Chipset Revision 13, Southbridge Vendor Intel, Southbridge Model 82801JR (ICH10R)
    Southbridge Revision 00

    So I was wondering if other users with this motherboard have encountered similar problems?

    I have concluded that the chkdsk information is meaningless as all other tests of the disk show it is in perfect condition and when it is cloned to a new identical drive AFTER running chkdsk ssfc scannow the same report is given when running chkdsk from boot=-up

    Comments welcome

  • Hi,


    This command is to check the file system and file system metadata of a volume for logical and physical errors.


    I would like to know what your real concerns on your computer are.


    You could check the Event Viewer to see if chkdsk process is successful:


    Open the Event Viewer and navigate to Windows Logs / Application.


    In the right side section, look for:


    Source: wininit

    Event ID: 1001
