Running a Disk Check in Windows 10


Ah, remember the good old says with Windows NT where you could type:

chkdsk C: /f

and on the next reboot, Windows would do a nice, detailed check of the hard drive? Well, with Windows 10, you get to use a new procedure:

  1. Press Windows + X on the keyboard.
  2. Select Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
  3. In the CMD window, type the following command and press Enter
    sfc /scannow
  4. Wait for the process to complete. Restart the computer.
