How to disable automatic disk scan and repair on Windows 7

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Sometimes randomly automatic disk scan and repair starts on my Windows 7 before booting into the operating system. It does no good and screws up everything. I have not narrowed down exactly why this is happening but it's the second time in the last 2 months. I am left with no choice but to reinstall everything. System restore does not work nor disk repair it initiates etc. Anyone know how to prevent this disk scan and repair from starting?

I'm not sure yet what you're talking about; what exactly are you seeing? I mean, I know that you see it before Windows really loads, but I don't know beyond that.

I know exactly what you are talking about! Sometimes after it does it on one of my machines, it tells me that Windows is not GENUINE!!! ***! So, I did some searching, and found out how to PERMINANTELY turn off the damn check disk FOREVER! frown.gif) (skip to step two...)

Here it is:

(1) In the system recovery options, I would like to suggest you launch Command Prompt and run the following command to check the hard disk.


C:

CHKDSK /R



Note: Please replace "C:" with the actual drive letter of the system drive on which Windows 7 is stored.



(2) If the hard disk is good, but it keeps checking the hard disk when starting, you may try the following commands to disable checking disk.



chkntfs /X C:



If you want to disable check disk on two or more drives, just keep on adding the drives:



chkntfs /X C: D: E:



This will disable check disk on C, D and E drives. Goodbye evil scan... Because if, like me, sometimes it won't even let me cancel by pressing any key! Plus I could not find a key on the keyboard labelled "any" anyway wink.gif
Good Luck. This will fix it.

I had a feeling it was chkdsk, but I needed to be 100% sure.

Can I do it from going to the start menu, typing cmd, and then typing the command. Once I type it how do I know it went through, does it say something. I typed it and it just shows the same directory line before typing it. Thanks.

You need to open a command window first and then type in the commands. In your start menu just type in cmd and you will see cmd.exe appear, click on it and a command window will open up. Then type in the commands that were posted above for you.

So the answer is yes: you can just type "cmd", press Enter, and then enter the commands. But I don't know what is supposed to happen after entering the command(s).
