Does chkdsk scan all the drives, or only one drive?
Follow these steps:
(Note: I have used a variable x, which is the drive letter(s) for which chkdsk performs scan on boot)
1) Open cmd.
2) Type fsutil dirty query x:. Press Enter
3) If it says "Volume X: is dirty", run a manual chkdsk x: /f scan at that instant.
Reboot after u have followed the above steps for all x:
Hi, I appear to have a slightly different problem than this? I'm using onboard SATA controller on a Gigabyte board and I stripped two 80GB 7200RPM drives together on it. (RAID) This is a new/fresh install of XPP SP2 with all patches. One huge NTFS partition. The problem is that chkdsk runs on EVERY boot. It only takes a second because it doesn't find any problems. But I checked the dirty bit and it isn't set and I tried the suggestion quoted above with no change. I'm a little stumped... I've defragmented it a couple times too both online and offline defrags. Less than 1% fragmentation. and 120GB free. Any help would be much appreciated.
