    Anyone with CHKDSK expertise? Do I have anything to worry about?


    For those with CHKDSK expertise, are there any concerns with below report?

    What would have caused this check?


    Checking file system on C:
    The type of the file system is NTFS.


    One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You
    may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended
    that you continue.
    Windows will now check the disk.

    Stage 1: Examining basic file system structure ...
    The attribute of type 0x80 and instance tag 0x6 in file 0x1c
    has allocated length of 0x800000 instead of 0x1000000.

    from file record segment 0x1C.
    260352 file records processed.
    File verification completed.
    6843 large file records processed.
    0 bad file records processed.

    Stage 2: Examining file name linkage ...
    4137 reparse records processed.
    325386 index entries processed.
    Index verification completed.
    0 unindexed files scanned.
    0 unindexed files recovered to lost and found.
    4137 reparse records processed.

    Stage 3: Examining security descriptors ...
    Cleaning up 2161 unused index entries from index $SII of file 0x9.
    Cleaning up 2161 unused index entries from index $SDH of file 0x9.
    Cleaning up 2161 unused security descriptors.
    Security descriptor verification completed.
    32518 data files processed.
    CHKDSK is verifying Usn Journal...
    Usn Journal verification completed.
    CHKDSK discovered free space marked as allocated in the volume bitmap.

    Windows has made corrections to the file system.
    No further action is required.

    116657623 KB total disk space.
    107281664 KB in 132322 files.
    88448 KB in 32519 indexes.
    0 KB in bad sectors.
    334739 KB in use by the system.
    65536 KB occupied by the log file.
    8952772 KB available on disk.

    4096 bytes in each allocation unit.
    29164405 total allocation units on disk.
    2238193 allocation units available on disk.

    Internal Info:

    Windows has finished checking your disk.
    Please wait while your computer restarts.


    I've removed internal info but don't think there's anything personally identifiable here?

    chkdsk c: /F

    It might be an error on the drive. We suggests that you follow the troubleshooting steps below:

    • Run Disk Cleanup utility to clear your junk files.
    • Open an elevated CMD type sfc /scannow and hit Enter to run the System File Checker.
    • Once the scan is completed, restart your computer. Remember to exit ChkDsk
      during boot.
    • Next, again open CMD as admin type
      Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
      and hit Enter to repair the Windows image.
    • Now see if ChkDsk able to complete the scan.

    Note: Before doing the steps, make sure you save a back up of your files.

    Let us know how it goes.

    chkdsk c: /F

    We appreciate the response. I'm referring to Check Disk (chkdsk) utility tool. If you haven't tried yet, we suggest that you run a chkdsk by:

    • Press Windows Key + X button to bring up the power user menu.
    • In the power user menu, select the Command Prompt (Admin) option.Click Yes when you are presented with a UAC window requesting permission to launch the Command Prompt as Administrator.
    • In the new Command Prompt window, type chkdsk E: /f /r /x. Here you should replace E with your drive letter.
    This option will run chkdsk to check and repair disk errors in Windows 10. The “/f” parameter tells CHKDSK to fix any errors it finds; “/r” tells it to locate the bad sectors on the drive and recover readable information; “/x” forces the drive to dismount
    before the process starts.

    Keep us updated with the result.

    Chkdsk disclaimer:
    The Chkdsk (Check Disc) scan will try to identify and repair bad sectors found on the hard drive. Any data present on these sectors might be lost in the process. The computer can also go into a no boot state. Proceed at your
