chkdsk not working for me

Hello, Bleeping Computer. I have the same problem as DCguy, the chkdsk utility will not work in my Windows 7 operating system. I have tried all of the fixes suggested, to no avail. Restore points are no good due to corruption.

 

I tried to edit the registry, following dc3's instructions. The value was not correct, but I found 3 lines of text to modify under BootExecute. I made varous edits, and the data value changed to autocheck autochk *  Isdelete, which I now see is wrong- I used a capital "eye" after the asterisk instead of lower case "el". So the data value didn't actually change, but when I ran chkdsk after the edits, I got an error message  for the first time, saying autocheck could not be found, and is cancelled. Does anyone have more detailed information on the exact registry editing?

 

Just for fun, I ran chkdsk again just now, and noticed a text message on my desktop:

 

WARNING!  F parameter not specified.

Running CHKDSK in read-only mode.

 

There followed incomplete results. Can anyone help me with this problem? Thank you.

That error message is routine...it just tells you that you didn't ask chkdsk to correct anything, so it will just run in read-mode and not attempt to rectify anything.

 

The command to use:  chkdsk /r , not just chkdsk.

 

Chkdsk /f is included within the chkdsk /r command.

 

Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter.  Type Y in new screen, hit Enter.  Reboot the system, the command will execute before booting into Windows.

 Louis,

Thank you for your help. I had never thought of running Chkdsk directly from the "run" box. Now I have, using "chkdsk /r".  I have run error-checking through C:Properties:tools; I have tried running Chkdsk from cmd, as an administrator, using several recommended permutations; I have "attempted repairs of disc volume errors" from System Maintenance of Windows 7 Action Center; and I have tried to "repair hard drive problems" through the Drive Medic function of the System Mechanic utility. The results have been the same- on restart, Windows reboots normally, immediately, without running the lengthy error-checking process.

In addition, in the registry, I have been able to change BootExecute to its default value, "autocheck autochk * lsdelete". After Chkdsk failed once again, the value changed to "autocheck autochk /r \??\C:autocheck autochk * lsdelete".

Following the advice on another forum, I ran the sfc utility in cmd, which told me it could not repair several corrupt files. I cannot open CBS.log, which lists the corrupt files, even though I ignored Window's dire warnings and got administrator permission. I then ran another command prompt which is suppposed to help locate SFC.exe program entries: "findstr /c:”[SR]” %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >sfcdetails.txt", but nothing happened. I will probably do more research on this topic.

Do you have any more suggestions?  Thank you.

Louis (we share a name)

Remove System Mechanic from your system, BC does not enorse the use of such programs.

I have uninstalled System Mechanic, CrapCleaner, and all of the programs that were updated about the time I first noticed this problem, except for Firefox. Chkdsk runs in "read-only" mode, and ends abruptly.

Chkdsk /r is the command.  Simply typing chkdsk will result in the readj-only mode, with nothing being accomplished.

Yes, I used "Chkdsk /r" as the command; I had to run as administrator or nothing happened. I also tried C:Properties: tools.

As a tip, always run it with both switches (chkdsk /f /r C:) then issue the command (shutdown -f -r -t 00) or simply restart!

The /f switch is part of the /r switch routine, nothing is gained by adding the /f switch to the command :).

Louis, 

 

Have you had a chance to look at my MiniToolBox information and specs I posted on March 5th,  #9 above?

 

Thank you.

Did you run the chkdsk /r command successfully?

When I tried to open chkdsk /r (with the "r"), the command window appeared for a split second, then disappeared. As an administrator, chkdsk /r ran in run-only mode, and ended abruptly after a few seconds.

You tried running the chkdsk /r command from the command prompt?

 

I didn't suggest chkdsk /f...I said chkdsk /r, please.
