    What's the Significance of These CHKDSK Errors?


    I had a BSOD on shutting down my desktop PC yesterday and the PC hung when trying to reboot. The PC booted OK when I powered it off and restarted. There was no error dump file produced. I ran chkdsk c: /f to check my SSD system drive which detected and corrected errors in the security descriptors as shown below. What's the significance of these errors and why do they arise?

    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.

    Unable to perform chkdsk with error: Access denied on Windows 10

    Hi Jay,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    This issue might have occurred when you do not have permissions to access the folder/ drive.

    Do let us know the following to assist you better with this issue:

    • How exactly are you trying to run chkdsk command?
    • On which drive are you deploying chkdsk command?

    Step 1: Try the following steps to take the ownership of the respective folder/ drive and check if it helps:

    • Right-click the C: Drive that you want to take ownership of, and then click
      Properties.
    • Click the Security tab, and then click
      OK on the Security message, if one appears.
    • Click Advanced, and then click the
      Owner tab.
    • In the Name list, click your user name,
      Administrator if you are logged in as Administrator, or click the
      Administrators group.
    • If you want to take ownership of the contents of that folder, click to select the
      Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box.
    • Click OK.

    • You may receive the following error message, where
      Folder is the name of the folder that you want to take ownership of: You do not have permission to read the co1ntents of directory
      Folder. Do you want to replace the directory permissions with permissions granting you Full Control? All permissions will be replaced if you press
      Yes.
    7. Click
    Yes
    .

    8. Click OK, and then reapply the permissions and security settings that you want for the folder and the folder contents.

    For reference go through the below article:

    "Access Denied" or other errors when you access or work with files and folders in Windows

    Step 2: I suggest you to follow the below steps to perform check disk:

    • Press Windows + X keys on the keyboard, click Command Prompt (Admin).
    • In the Command Prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

      chkdsk /f
    • You may be asked whether to schedule this volume to be checked next time when you restarts (Y/N).
    • Press Y key on the keyboard and press
      Enter key.
    • Restart the computer and check.

    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 own risk.

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of the issue to assist you further.
