Why is chkdsk on boot ssds disallowed (win7) ?

Why is chkdsk on boot ssds disallowed (win7) ?

 

Mounted externally chkdsk discovers tons of corrupted files and even seems to fix them.

You can't chkdsk the system drive from windows but if you attempt to do so it should offer to do it during your next startup.

Re: Why is chkdsk on boot ssds disallowed (win7) ?

of course only on startup

 

 

but if I mark the volume for chkdsk on next startup, windows seems to block / refuse it

 

no chance to force it

 

I had this effect only on SSDs

I have had the same issue, not with Win7 but with Win8.  With Win8 I think it has to do with the fast startup/hybrid boot.  I think scheduled chkdsk on boot in Win7 worked fine for me though.

Hi jackjackffm and front360,

 

I have tested chkdsk on an M500 drive in our computer lab today using both Windows 7 and Windows 8.  It worked no problem at all on the drive.

 

The problems you are having running chkdsk could be down to problems with your SATA controllers, can you try and connect the SSD to a different SATA port in the system and try again?

 

If this does not work I would recommend you check to see if you have the most up to date SATA drivers for your motherboard.

Re: Why is chkdsk on boot ssds disallowed (win7) ?

I have same problem with MX100 SSD, No chance to make chk dsk

I also upgrade firmware with Crucial tool. 

Crucial Storage Executive aplication analyse disk and with disk is everything OK except 

chk dsk. Over provisioning test indicate - The selected drive has a dirty volume and the user must run check disk on it before performing OP operations

I have big problem with system stability. I need chk dsk

Re: Why is chkdsk on boot ssds disallowed (win7) ?

What is your OS and motherboard/notebook model? I believe that some severe problems can possibly be caused for example by storage driver that may be too old to support the SSD properly. Please post your motherboard information and storage driver version - you can check it with Device manager -> IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers (or Storage Controllers) -> right click on the selected controller -> Properties -> Driver tab

 

Could you post the output of your chkdsk command? Also note that you have to run chkdsk command from an elevated command prompt, as an administrator.
