Hi folks, when i do the chkdsk command to see if my system is in order i get either a :

 

#1/   all is ok message and no problems 

 

#2/   a repair is pending and to restart your computer and run chkdsk again  (this goes way back to a time when a system repair started but never finished and i believe it's frozen in my system somewhere )

 

#3/  the bitmap is incorrect and to run chkdsk /f to repair but when i do that it never works because a process is using it

 

So i'm baffled ,  every time i do it in safe mode or regular mode i get a different message , is there any way i can use some sort of code to reset all the settings and get this straightened out?

 

Thank you

The command "chkdsk" is useless. You need to run chkdsk /r as follows:

 

 right-click on a command prompt icon and open as administrator. In the command prompt window type: chkdsk /r  (then press ENTER). You'll be told the disk is in use and asked if you want to run checkdisk on the next boot. Say yes, exit the command prompt window, and reboot.

 

If you wish to run checkdisk on a drive other than your system partition (c: drive) the command would be: chkdsk d: /r or chkdsk e: /r, etc.

Well i'm back ,  i thought your info cured my problem and it did for a while as the chkdsk logs showed everything was ok but i ran it again a week later and the original message is back .

 

Bitmap is incorrect and there is a system repair pending and to  run chkdsk /f  to fix  but i ran chkdsk /r like you said and it fixed it temporarily .   Is there a way to reset everything so this can be fixed permanently.

 

Thanks

You are running Windows 7, correct? Have you installed SP1? If not, please do so.

Why are you continually running checkdisk? Do you have any problems or messages other than when you run checkdisk?
