3. Components > Chkdsk

Name

Chkdsk — \windows\system32\chkdsk.exe

Synopsis

Chkdsk scans the disk surface, checks the integrity of files and folders, and looks for lost clusters (among other things), correcting any problems that are found, and sometimes even freeing disk space consumed by unusable fragments of data. To use chkdsk effectively, include the following optional parameters:

chkdsk [drive[filename]] [/f] [/r] [/x] [/i] [/c] [/v]

Option

Description

/f

Fix any errors found. If /f is omitted, errors are merely reported, and no changes to the disk are made.
