    Chkdsk Error (XPP)

    This is a first encounter for me and the resources I have referred to have not provided me with any definitive direction.

    I ran Chkdsk at the command line and this is what I get:
    <pre>Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
    Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.</pre>


    <pre>Cocuments and SettingsBruce G.F. Krymow>chkdsk
    The type of the file system is NTFS.
    Volume label is Local HD.</pre>


    <pre>WARNING! F parameter not specified.
    Running CHKDSK in read-only mode.</pre>


    <pre>CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3)...
    Deleting corrupt attribute record (128, "")
    from file record segment 42107.
    File verification completed.</pre>


    <pre>Errors found. CHKDSK cannot continue in read-only mode.</pre>

    Uhhhh, what would anyone recommend I do to resolve completing the check fixing/repairing errors??

    Bruce--

    Three links may shed some light. But you didn't say which switch you're using at the command prompt. Also I wondered if you're seeing that chkdsk message come up every time you boot now. That might suggest a "dirty bit" problem. Try this:
    __________________________________________________ _______________________
    See if you have any disk corrpution by typing "fsutil dirty query [C]: Sub any drive you want for "C". If it says the volume isn't dirty, you don't need to run chkdsk because there aren't any errors on the disk. But I know you want to run it to see that it runs properly without this read-only error. The KB I'm going to list advises you to run "chkdsk volume_label: /v /f" to fix this. This will fix any errors on the disk and the "v" causes it to name each fixed file. Hopefully that will resolve it.
    But if it doesn't then run "chkdsk_volume label: /r", and if that doesn't then run the chkdsk /r from the recovery console.
    __________________________________________________ ___________________________
    Here's some background to look at:
    1) 283340 Chkdsk in Read-Only Mode Does not Detect Corruption on NTFS Volume.
    2) this thread particularly Jill Zoeller's comments and Alex Nichol's. Jill Zoeller is with Microsoft.
    3) this from Exec Soft's KBs. This set is not on the Read Only error, but on the chkdsk runs repatedly at start dirty bit problem. Help and Support has discussion of the "fsutil" commands.

    I knew you would be the first to jump on this one! <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    I didn't use any switches at the command line & I never get Chkdsk at boot. Here is feedback from first 2 suggestions:<pre>Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
    Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.</pre>

    <pre>Cocuments and SettingsBruce G.F. Krymow>fsutil dirty query C:
    Volume - C: is NOT Dirty</pre>

    <pre>Cocuments and SettingsBruce G.F. Krymow>chkdsk C: /v /f
    The type of the file system is NTFS.
    Cannot lock current drive.</pre>

    <pre>Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
    process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
    checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)y</pre>

    <pre>This volume will be checked the next time the system restarts.</pre>

    <pre>Cocuments and SettingsBruce G.F. Krymow>chkdsk C: /r
    The type of the file system is NTFS.

    I will have to wait to see what happens at next reboot as I am not able to do that now, but I suspect that unless it utilizes the switches entered, the results may be the same. I will take a thorough gander at the links you provided (thanks) - they are tough to find with the specificities.

    Hi, Dawg ~

    I am working on using Perfect Disk, but it won't let me defrag until I run Ckdsk completely and successfully.

    Dang it man. These things sure can be cantankerous sometimes. I just noticed you use NTFS file system. Don't know much about that, I use FAT32. Have you had any luck finding anything on the scandisk problem?

    >> I ran Chkdsk at the command line...

    Don't!

    Open up My Computer, Right Click on your C: Drive > Properties > Tools > Error Checking > Check Now and select both options.
    It should tell you the drive can not be checked and would you like to do it next time you reboot.
    Say "Yes please".

    Reboot.

    Re: Chkdsk Error (XPP)

    Hi, Lief ~

    That was what I did the very first time, then at Run, then at command line....same errors as posted at top. Now I am waiting to reboot frm the above switch schedule when I am done with my stuff here.

    I am curious why you exclamated.

    Re: Chkdsk Error (XPP)

    Only because it would never occur to me to run a chkdsk when a drive was in use - it can only do a full scan at boot time (in my view!)

    Re: Chkdsk Error (XPP)

    Fantastic! The 'chkdsk [drive]: /v /f' and/or 'chkdsk [drive]: /r' did the trick. I am not sure which or both since as you can see above I scheduled them both. Specifically, it deleted 'corrupt attribute 128 "" from file record segment 42107', then it finished finally the other 2 of 3 processes and checking and allowed Perfect Disk to do its optimizing & defrag routine.

    I downloaded Diskeeper Lite, installed it and the uninstalled it and guess what? I got the native defrag snap-in back. Thank you very much. Now I see why they call you................SMBP <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>.

    I am going to skip the 'chkdsk/r from the recovery console' since it seems to be okay and Perfect Disk is allowed to do what she should. I will hand it to you, chap, you can sometimes ferret out some of the more arcane procedures. I suppose I should really learn how to use the newsgroups - I never have.

    BTW - you wouldn't happen to know a way to capture the disappearing data regurgitated at the end of a 'chkdsk' session, would you?

    Bruce--
    I usually run chkdsk as part of Diskeeper's on boot options that you are familiar with but every time I have run it from the command line, it has always given me a message that the volume is in use (of course), but that it will run on next boot and it does. I used to run it where Leif directed you, but now I use the Diskeeper boxes because I do that when I'm going to defrag the MFT and the Page File because they are all in one location there.

    I have not had that specific error message--the thread and KB deal with *it*, but I did have the problem that once that when I tried to use Diskeeper on one of my drives, it wouldn't run defrag saying that the drive was corrupt, and Chkdsk had been scheduled to run and Chkdsk--very quickly ran every time I booted and I couldn't get out of that cycle--"couldn't defrag/chkdsk runs" for that drive. Diskeeper support said the "dirty bit" was set to run "Chkdsk/ r (that it was most comprehensive chkcsk command). Ran the same fsutil command you did and I got drive clean. Put it up on some groups and someone said to run Chkdsk/R from the Recovery Console. Why that should be any different, or more effective, I have no idea--but it worked like a charm and never had the problem again. So humor me, try chkdsk/r from the recovery console. Also try putting in Diskeeper Lite--and uninstalling it and see if you get your native defrag snap-in back.
