So I had 2 normal partitions on this computer started out with a 30gb linux and a 30gb windows. I decided that my windows needed more space than my linux, so I booted GParted and cut about 20 GB off my linux into unpartitioned space. I booted into windows and formatted this partition to run as Local Disk E:/ into a NTFS file system.

Now it wants to run chkdsk on E:/ every bootup, even when I know nothing is wrong with it. Any one have any clue?

Did you ever run chkdsk /r from the cmd prompt or Start/Run...on the partition in question?

Once you do that, the initial prompt at boot should not recur...unless there are problems with that partition.

I have never ran chkdsk on this new partition. Should I? I let it run every boot any ways and it never finds an error.

Does chkdsk complain that the volume is "dirty"? If so, it's possible that the "dirty bit" is set. To reset the dirty bit you'll have to re-format the hard drive.

Sorry, been a little busy.


So I tried running chkdsk /f and restarted, however whenever it boots it only runs regular chkdsk. Now it is keeping me from defragging as it keeps telling me that chkdsk is scheduled to run on it.

I'd have to suggest either a reformat of the partition or a hard disk diagnostic - as it's just not supposed to behave that way.
