Hello,

Event viewer on a Windows 2008 R2server is reporting an Event 55:
The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable. Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume \Device\000000fe.

Great - I need to run chkdsk.  What is the correct/quickest way to identify which disk needs to be subjected to the disk check?  Disk Management doesn't seem to give me the information I am seeking.  I just have a C: & D: volume.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Real-Timer

Go to Device manager, Right click on each disk, go to Properties, select the Details tab, then look at the Physical Device Object name. Whichever disk matches the value you have is the one that needs to be checked.

It could be an external disk you are backing up to, or a USB stick or memory card (if you can't find it via the device manager mentioned above).

Just run chkdsk on all drives. It is not harmful to run it once per month to check that all is ok with the file systems.
