I'm used to running chkdsk on workstations and expect to see the message:
“Chkdsk Cannot Run Because the Volume Is in Use by Another Process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y?N)”Then, one can answer Yes and reboot to initiate the action.
However, I'm trying to do this on the OS C: drive on a Windows Server 2019 system, running cmd "as administrator" and nothing happens. The command seems to hang the command prompt. CTRL+C will recover the command prompt but no chkdsk seems to happen. The server seems to continue working. That's not what one would expect if chkdsk is going to run.
What is going on here? How to overcome so the chkdsk can be run?
I haven't found anything revealing...
