Question ckdsk running often

Quite often when I boot up that darn chkdsk insists on running and trying to check every one of my disks.

Usually it says it didn't find any errors.

Once, after it had ran, my drives were useless and I had to format and restore from backup -- damn thing trashed my drives.

Why is it running and how can i stop it?

Sometimes my keyboard is recognized and sometimes it isn't and then I can't stop it by hitting a key.

There must be something wrong causing it to want to check my drives all the time.

It did it yesterday and since then loading Outlook takes over a minute and it is on the SSD then my mail file takes another minute. Most stuff seems to run ok but somethings are very slow to start.

Is your filesystem NTFS on all of these drives? You've been shutting down the computer correctly right?

Yep, never turn it off by the power button except if it is hung up and I have no other choice. Always shut down right.

All drives are NTFS.

I am switching back and forth between Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Windows 7 is on the SSD ... Windows 8 on a regular platter drive.

I was watching this morning when it did it ( twice in a row before a successful boot ) and it goes into starting Windows and the logos come up and then it goes into chkdsk.

I'm tempted to rename chkdsk temporarily to see what happens.

Does not happen when booting into Windows 8 only Windows 7.

Haven't tried Windows 8 this morning but I'm betting the disk may be trashed after chkdsk ran twice. I was surprised Windows 7 even ran.

The only way that chkdsk knows to check the drives is if they are flagged dirty before you reboot. Have you checked the flag?

fsutil dirty query C:

You can just disable check disks at startup:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\
BootExecute
autocheck autochk *

I could be wrong but I don't think there is a problem with the drive. Usually when this happens it is a problem with the OS/bootup, registry corruption, or especially caused by upgrading OS from XP to win7, etc.

No, I didn't know how to check the flag.
But, I couldn't check it anyway before the computer has booted. Guess I might check it before shutting down.

I wonder if Windows 8 is putting some kind of marker on the disk that Windows 7 sees ... but it doesn't happen every time though. Hmm.

The two OS's are on different disks and I don't know why Windows 8 would mess with the Windows 7 drive unless I looked at it with Windows 8 which I have done on occassion looking for something.

The trouble looks like it is in Windows 7 because I get that splash screen with the logos before it goes into chkdsk.

Yeah that's what I meant, you can check the flag before shutting down.

Also, check the registry value I mentioned (use regedit from Run). You can disable automatic checkdisks by setting the value of BootExecute tothe following string like I mentioned:
autocheck autochk *
