Windows 7 finds errors and recommends to run Chkdsk
I'm attempting to find support on Windows 7 Beta but the Action Center that comes with the beta brings me to the Windows Vista support site. I've made comments and sent feedback but was hoping to find a central forum for others beta testing Windows 7.
I'll gladly re-post my question there if there's such a site.
My question (which also happened in Vista)
Windows 7 is finding errors with the file system and is suggesting that I run chkdsk.exe. When I run chkdsk and schedule it to do a scan at next reboot, it doesn't scan, it just continues to load in to Windows 7. "chkdsk c: /F" and then "shutdown -r -t 0"
Some sites suggested that the Windows installation is boogered up. Considering this, I ran "SFC /SCANNOW" to see what was found. The log reported errors that couldn't be fixed and continued browsing through the logs showed some other issues such as "C:\Windows\System32\autochk.exe
do not match actual file" which was found in relation to causing problems with chkdsk.exe not running at next reboot.
Any thoughts, suggestions, or words of wisdom?
This thread is locked. You can follow the question or vote as helpful, but you cannot reply to this thread.
Windows 7 is ofcourse still in beta, so I send this to you for educational reasons mostly.
as for chkdsk, it is interesting that you are forcing the scan and then prompting for a shut down.
what happens when you do chkdsk /r and when asked to run this at the next restart, type
y, and press Enter.
It might be your command that is inaccurate here and not the program itself.
let us know your results, and thanks for using the community.
