    I'm running Windows 7.

    I was having chkdsk issues where it would run every startup.

    As I had had this problem before, asked and answered, I just referred to my past notes.

    Funny thing: when I ran the command

    Chkntfs /x c:

    I got back the response that the file system was not NTFS. That was certainly news.

    What IS the file system in Windows 7 if not NTFS?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Please ask all your Windows 7 Beta questions in the Beta Software forum. (I'm moving this thread there now)

    What does the "properties" say when in Windows 7?

    Is Windows 7 on the C drive, I thought you were dual booting?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Chuck,
    What were you trying to accomplish with the chkntfs /x c: command?

    The /X switch is supposed to exclude the drive from the next boot up file check.
    The /C switch WILL schedule a boot time check.
    Just the C: will specify the drive involved.

    So, are you running JUST Windows 7 alone, NOT dual booting?
    Are you sure the WIN 7 OS is on the C drive not the D for instance?

    Why not just run chkdsk at boot time and let it be done with it?

    Bob:

    Like the good boy that I am, I'm just folowing instructions. I had this problem previously, and the kind souls of this board pointed me to a link that then directed me to

    http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/wi...windows/?p=790

    Following the instructions worked.

    So, when I had the same issue now, I was trying to repeat the success.

    Are you running an elevated command window?

    The file format wil be whatever you formatted it to be when you installed Windows 7 or whatever it was if you did not format when you installed Windows 7. To see the file system in use use Windows Explorer and right click the drive and select Properties.

    RUNNING Chkdsk /f /r C:[/quote]

    Bob, first, your command worked.

    Secondly that page instructs read:

    --
    Run a Command Prompt As Administrator
    if encountering UAC respond appropriately

    Type

    Chkdsk /f /r Y:

    where Y: is your drive

    Close the commnad prompt and restart your system

    Re-open Command prompt and type chkdsk /f /r Y:

    It will prompt to start a Check Disk at startup...type Y and prss Enter The restart...

    .....

    Chuck,
    So are you OK now. No prompts and all?

    I couldn't really make out if you were fixed or not?
