Shows or sets whether system checking should be run when the computer is started. The system checking is done using
Autochk.exe. The "NTFS" part of the command name is misleading, since the command works not only with NTFS file system but also with FAT and FAT32 file systems..
Must be run with admin privileges.
$ chkntfs c: The type of the file system is NTFS. C: is not dirty.
$ chkntfs /? Displays or modifies the checking of disk at boot time. CHKNTFS volume [...] CHKNTFS /D CHKNTFS /T[:time] CHKNTFS /X volume [...] CHKNTFS /C volume [...] volume Specifies the drive letter (followed by a colon), mount point, or volume name. /D Restores the machine to the default behavior; all drives are checked at boot time and chkdsk is run on those that are dirty. /T:time Changes the AUTOCHK initiation countdown time to the specified amount of time in seconds. If time is not specified, displays the current setting. /X Excludes a drive from the default boot-time check. Excluded drives are not accumulated between command invocations. /C Schedules a drive to be checked at boot time; chkdsk will run if the drive is dirty. If no switches are specified, CHKNTFS will display if the specified drive is dirty or scheduled to be checked on next reboot.
