CHKDSK without fixes/changes, diagnostic only RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to run CHKDSK on a disk without making any changes, purely diagnostically?

    At the moment my interest is only WRT the filesystem, not the disk itself.  And at the moment I'm interested in the filesystem of a non-system drive.

    I ask because sometimes I'd rather not make changes sometimes until I know I need to and have backed up the drive (since as we know CHKDSK sometimes can end up completely hosing a drive's data).
