One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency
I have got two hard disk on my desktop one of them is called C for OS XP SP3 and other is called D for program files and Data
Recently whenever I restarted my PC I would have been experiencing the message below
Checking file system on D :
Type : NTFS
One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended that you continue.
Windows will now check the disk.
CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3)
File verification completed
CHKDSK is verifying indexes (stage 2 of 3 )
File verification for completed
CHKDSK is verifying security descriptors (stage 3 of 3 )
Security descriptors completed
After that I could not write the whole message
What I did I followed the instructions in the quot below :
Please follow the next steps in order:
Click Start, then Run (Search In Vista)
Type cmd, and click Ok
At the prompt in the command window that opens, type fsutil dirty query ?: and press Enter (Where ? is the letter of the drive to queried)
Does the result of this indicate the drive is "Dirty"?
To unset the Dirty Bit
If you have Spyware Doctor installed, uninstall it.
If you have ZoneAlarm installed, open it, click the "Overview" tab, then select "Preferences", and UNcheck the "Protect ZA Client" check box.
Click Start, then Run, type cmd in the Open box and click "Ok". At the prompt in the Command window, type the following commands, pressing "Enter" after each one:
Substitute the drive letter for the drive your want to check for the ? in the following commands. Please note the spaces.
chkntfs /d ..... (This will reset autocheck options to default...will come back invalid on some installations)
chkntfs /c ?: ..... (This will allow checking the specified drive )
chkntfs /x ?: ..... (The x switch tells Windows to NOT check the specified drive on the next boot)
At this point, restart your computer, it will not do a chkdsk and will boot directly to Windows.
This next step is important as this is where the Dirty Bit will be unset.
Substitute the drive letter for the drive your want to check for the ? in the following commands.
Click Start, then Run, type cmd in the Open box and click "Ok". At the command prompt, type the following, pressing "Enter" after each one: (Again, note the spaces.)
chkdsk /f /r ?: ..... (To manually run a full chkdsk operation on the specified drive)
Y ..... (To accept having it run on the next boot)
This should take you through 5 stages of the scan and will unset the Dirty Bit. Be patient...this is a very thorough check and will take quite a while.
Finally, when the chkdsk operation has completed, type fsutil dirty query ?:, press "Enter", and Windows will confirm that the Dirty Bit is not set on that drive.
Reboot again and see if chkdsk still runs on startup.
So far so good I restarted the PC three times and chkdsk didn't run on startup
Let up see how it will go for the next couple of days.
