JSI Tip 4567. Do I have to watch the CHKDSK screen to see what gets fixed?


When you schedule a chkdsk <Drive> /f \[/r\], Chkdsk writes an Application Event Log entry similar to:

   Event Type:     Information
   Event Source:   Winlogon
   Event ID:       1001
   Computer:       Computer_Name
   Description:    Checking file system on C:
                   The type of the file system is NTFS.
                   Volume label is System.

   A disk check has been scheduled.
   Windows will now check the disk.                         
   Cleaning up minor inconsistencies on the drive.
   Cleaning up 153 unused index entries from index $SII of file 0x9.

   Windows has made corrections to the file system.
