chkdsk RRS feed

  • Question

  • Guys,

    According to wikipedia, chkdsk is the following:

    Microsoft Windows operating systems that displays the file system integrity status of hard disks and floppy disk and can fix logical file system errors

    but, what does it exactly? What is the file system integrity, what problems can occur and what are logical file system errors?

  • Sorry sounds like a homework question.  Have you tried Googling those questions?

    No there isnt a tool that does them both automatically & at the same time.  A good 3rd party app can do both but has to do them at different times.

    File system errors can cause read errors, write errors, crashes, or an inability to boot.  Can you be more specific?

  • Sometimes, during a read write operation, some external activity like power failure or system errors can cause files to get disintegrated. So after that, if you try to access the affected file you get an error. CHKDSK checks for such broken files and fixes or "integrates" them accordingly.

  • when comparing it with fragmentation tools, are there differences?

    also, does a tool exist thats able to defrag and checkdisk(maybe offline??) automatically?

  • no homework question, just needed a decent response. Found several sources on the net with different info.

    Can you advise a 3rd party app?
