Disable or Stop Auto CHKDSK During Windows Startup

If each time you boot your system, the
operating system (Windows XP Pro SP2) runs ScanDisk on one of your partitioned
drive, stating that the computer did not shut down properly,which is not true.

If you have drive C: as your hard drive, then the command to disable chkdsk from scanning C: drive would be:

chkntfs /x c:

If you have 2 drive, C and D, you can disable chkdsk with the command below

chkntfs /x c: d:

The chkntfs utility works by modifying the BootExcecute value in the system registry. The BootExecute value is located in the following registry key:


The default value is for BootExecute is autocheck autochk *. When you use the /x switch, it will add a /k parameter prior to the asterisk. The /k parameter excludes volumes from being checked.
