Force a ChkDisk on unclean shutdown on Windows 7?
Posted on 2014-08-20
We have hundreds of Windows 7 computers in a retail environment. Retail employees are not computer savvy, and frequently push the power button to hard shut down a machine. (Despite our requests not to)
I was curious if there is a way to automatically force a "ChkDisk /f" on machines which have not been shutdown properly? It would be awesome if it could be done through GPO.
Bonus points if text could be included that said, "Because this computer was not properly shutdown, we are running a check of your system. Please shutdown the computer by using the Start Button > Shutdown in the future."
Windows 95 used to do this back in the day, can it still be done today?
