Hello
How to know the Disk check results, what the disk check corrected? The disk
check shows the message "disk check complete" only.

Hello Dmitry,

I haven't had a disk error for a good many years, but as I remember from the
old days, in case you had an error on the disk, it address (in terms of
block or cluster) would be displayed on the screen. This is true if you have
not checked any of the options. If you select the option to correct any
filesystem errors automatically, I believe it corrected the error, but it
still gave an indication of the action. Therefore, if you get a disk check
completed, it means that there were no errors at all.

Good luck,
Engin

For a peek at the chkdsk log.

Open the Event Viewer...
Start | Run | Type: eventvwr | OK
Look in Application | Listed as Information |
Event ID: 1001
Source: Winlogon
[[Description: This includes file system type; drive letter or GUID, and
volume name or serial number to help determine what volume Chkdsk ran
against. Also included is whether Chkdsk ran because a user scheduled it or
because the dirty bit was set.]]

[[When Autochk runs against a volume at boot time it records its output to a
file called Bootex.log in the root of the volume being checked. The Winlogon
service then moves the contents of each Bootex.log file to the Application
Event log.]]

[[This file states whether Chkdsk encountered any errors and, if so,
whether they were fixed.]]

Bootex.log is then deleted. The Application Event log is AppEvent.Evt and
is viewed in the Event Viewer, under Application.

Bootex.log can be acessed with recovery software such as Restoration.

There is nothing about a disk check with a Source-"Winlogon", a
Type-"Information" in my Event Viewer although I checked disks several
times.

This will create a chkdsk log.

Paste this into a command prompt...

CHKDSK C: /F > C:\CHKDISKLOG.TXT

Hit your Enter key.

Click YES on the popup to reboot.

After CHKDSK has run paste this in Start | Run...

C:\CHKDISKLOG.TXT

Click OK.

Hi,

Here is a VBScript (.vbs file) that will run CHKDSK without using /F on
all fixed disk drives and create a log file (if you add /F the script
will just hang so you shouldn't)...


'--------------------8<----------------------

'chkdsk_all.vbs
'Runs chkdsk on all hard disks - Can be run as a Scheduled Task
'puts the output of chkdsk in a log and display it
' Torgeir Bakken - 2002-03-05
'Based on the script defrag_all2.vbs by Doug Knox
'This code may be freely distributed/modified

Option Explicit

Dim WshShell, fso, d, dc, LogFile

LogFile = "C:\ChkdskReport.txt"

Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Set dc = fso.Drives

WshShell.Run "%comspec% /c echo Starting chkdsk of all hard disks " _
& Now & " >" & LogFile, 0, True
For Each d in dc
If d.DriveType = 2 Then
WshShell.Run "%comspec% /c echo ********* Checking drive " & d _
& " ******** >>" & LogFile, 0, True
WshShell.Run "%comspec% /c chkdsk.exe " & d & " >>" & LogFile, 0, True
End If
Next

WshShell.Run LogFile

'--------------------8<----------------------
