Check the NTFS file system with CHKDSK


      CHKNTFS drive: [...]

      CHKNTFS /C drive: [...]

      CHKNTFS /X drive: [...]

      CHKNTFS /D


   drive : Specifies a drive letter.

   /C : Check - schedules chkdsk to be run at the next reboot.

   /X : Exclude a drive from the default boot-time check.

        Excluded drives are not accumulated between command invocations.

   /D : Restore the machine to the default behavior; all drives are checked at boot

  time and chkdsk is run on those that are dirty.  This undoes the effect of the

  /X option.

If no switches are specified, CHKNTFS will display the status of the

dirty bit for each drive.
