Hi Experts,

There have been BSOD issues and sometimes got C: drive idle time hanging too long. So, I have just run CHKDSK on one of our servers and it found error on C: drive.

Now, what do I need to do? I am concerned system might be crashed completely if I run CHKDSK /f as it might cause some worse issues.

The type of the file system is NTFS.

WARNING!  F parameter not specified.
Running CHKDSK in read-only mode.
