Windows 10 - CHKDSK volume bitmap inconsistency

Postby timg11 » Thu Oct 27, 2016 11:11 am

In Windows 10 /64, CHKDSK C: returns (among other normal output) the error "The Volume Bitmap is incorrect."

Changing the command to CHKDSK C: /SCAN results in
"Windows has scanned the file system and found no problems. No further action is required."

Why is there a difference? What is the volume bitmap, and why would CHKDSK only find a problem when not using the /SCAN option?

I run chkdsk in my script before imagew64.exe to be sure the drive doesn't have errors. This is causing the script to error out before the image.

I can just change the command to CHKDSK C: /SCAN, but I'd like to understand more about what's going on.

at some point (one of the windows upgrades - might have been vista/7) their
non /f checking (on unlocked drives) can find problems since things are
changing and inconsistent.

So you're thinking the volume bitmap error is a false positive, and I'm doing the right thing by changing my script to use "CHKDSK C: /SCAN"
