chkdsk high memory usage--Windows 7 64bit Home Premium RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    High memory usage by CHkdsk in Windows 7 64bit Home Premium, decided to check my external drive with nothing else running eariler today, and ram spiked all the way up to 94 percent in use.    Is there a hotfix to fix this bug or a solution to fixing it?
