    Assume I want to check the partition NTFS integrity of a Win 7 system from a BootCD with WinXP.

    Is this possible?

    Or is the WinXP chkdsk utility outdated and NOT usable for Win 7 NTFS systems?

    Windows 7 uses the same version of NTFS as XP NTFS v3.1 so it should work.


    From an elevated command prompt you can verify the NTFS info with this command

    fsutil fsinfo ntfsinfo C:
