Pre-release Windows 7 [i.e., RTM] had a number of issues with the invaluable CHKDSK [i.e., Check Disk] utility. So much so that there was even a fear that the release of Windows 7 would have to be delayed because of just the CHKDSK issues.
CHKDSK seems to work.
My issue has to do with INVOKING it against my C: drive; i.e., the System Disk.
CHK DSK can not run against an active System Disk. So it has to be run immediately after start-up. What Windows 7 does is SCHEDULE a CHK DSK run on the next start-up.
Here is the problem. On my rig, it doesn’t do this scheduling right away. There is an inordinate lag, a delay. Then when I try to CANCEL it, it pops up with a message saying can I schedule a CHK DSK at next start-up.
That is not right. Something is amiss.
So just a heads up.
