I need to understand scan disk commands.


Answer by  fiddlefaddle (883)

Scan disk has many commands. /all is used to check and repair all local drives, /autofix fixes errors without prompting you, /checkonly will check the local drive but will not fix, /custom is for running custom scans, /mono is used to surface scan after checking other areas of the drive.

Scandisk is a program in windows used to check for errors on your hard disk. Only used in Windows 98 or older. Your probably need to run CHKDSK instead.

scandisk is a command that you can use at a command prompt in Windows to examine and fix errors on your hard drive. (e. g. "scandisk c:\")


Answer by  senthil34 (169)

A or ALL - Scans all local, non-removable hard drives. Autofix - Fixes damages without prompting. Checkonly - Tests for errors but doesn't make any changes. Custom - Configures and runs Scandisk according to the Scandisk. ini file settings. Nosave - With autofix, deletes lost clusters rather than saving as files.
