I'm running Windows 2008 as my server for an internet cafe. My problem is it runs checkdisk every time the computer restarts. I even allowed it to finish so the check disk won't appear again but it is stubborn and is starting to annoy me.
People would have to wait a few minutes before I can let them use the computer.
What can I do to solve this problem I'm having?
Windows CheckDisk (chkdsk /f) Runs After Every Restart
CHKDSK is another Windows feature that automatically runs if you don't properly shuts down your computer. To fix your problem, follow the steps below:
1. Click Start and then Run. Type CMD on the text field and press the enter key.
2. Type fsutil dirty query e: on the command prompt and then press enter. If the result is indicating that the volume is dirty continue with the next step.
3. Type chkdsk e: /f /x and press the enter key. When it's done, type fsutil dirty query e: again and if the volume is clean, restart your computer and notice that the chkdsk alert will no longer appear.
You can also try to edit the registry if the above solution doesn't work. Another way to disable chkdsk is to use the /x switch on the chkntfs command. This command will leave the drive from the default boot-time check. If your default hard drive is the Drive C:, you can disable chkdsk from scanning by doing the following command:
chkntfs /x c:
If you are using more than one drive, then you can try the chkntfs /x c: d: command.
chkntfs performs by amending the BootExecute value on your system registry. Navigate to the following to see the BootValue:
The default value of BootExecute is the autocheck autochk.
If you use the /x switch, it will insert a /k parameter before the (*) asterisk. The /k parameter will leave the volumes from being checked when there is a dirty bit.
