  • This is not really an end user forum.  It is a technical forum for Admin scripting.

    As a quick answer select the properties of the C drive and the tools tab in File Explorer and run check drive. You must be running from the admin account.

  • Hi,

    >>How do I run "chkdsk /f C:" in elevated mode in Windows 10 Home?

    open cmd,hit ctrl+shift+left mouse, you'll open an elevated mode as admin console.

    type: chkdsk /f c:, it will prompts you: the current driver is being used, so the operation can't be executed, but you could chooose 'Y' for next startup checking.

    Best regards,

    Andy

  • Thank you, it worked.  It is a bit frustrating to get an error message that isn't readily defined like 'elevated mode'.  Why not just say to change cmd level line from user to system?
