How Do I Run CheckDisk on WHS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm tryng to figure out my backup issues with my WHS. It has 3 Hard Drives installed, they all show as Healthy in Console so I'm unable to do anything from there. How do I RDP into the server and run CheckDisk? The only drive that shows is the "C"and "D" Should I also run Defrag on the drives? Any other tests to run?

  • The other drives are mounted in the C:\fs\ directory... so to manually run chkdsk on one of them it can be as simple as the following at the command line on the server (where X is the folder/drive name in C:\fs\):


    chkdsk c:\fs\X


    As for Defrag... don’t... at least not the built in Windows version which is not supported (although possible), instead stick with chkdsk.
