From time to time certain factors can cause an ImageManager nightly verification screenshot, or a VirtualBoot test to run a chkdsk when they boot up. Sometimes this is because of an issue with the source volume, but other times it can be a result of the virtualization process.
Before you disable automatic disk checking, we recommend that you verify the source volume, because if there is an issue with it, it's best to correct that root cause rather than bypass the scan.
- On the system that is being backed up, open an administrative command prompt
- Run the following command:
- If it says the volume is dirty, then you should schedule a chkdsk and then reboot when possible:
chkdsk /f /x /r
- This will need to be repaired with the disk offline, so the reboot is necessary.
If the volume is not dirty, then it's probably just part of the process causing the chkdsk to trigger on boot, so you can follow these directions to temporarily disable the disk autocheck right before the backup, and then enable it again afterward.
