Checking the dirty bit in the registry
Posted on 2006-10-23
I have used fsutil dirty query x: DOS command to see if the drive is dirty or not. What I need to find is the exact location in the registry where the dirty bit is located. I have found HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\BootExecute in the registry. I think this is the location of the dirty bit, but I am looking for confirmation. Also, I am looking for how to simulate a dirty bit so I can see what it will look like in the registry.
If this is not the right path, can someone tell me where it is? This is very urgent.
