    On my 64bit Win 7 system I have two partitions:

    C: (with the "core" Win7 system)
    D: (with almost all other stuff)

    When I start the following command:

    chkdsk D: /F /V /R /X >C:\chkdskout.log

    everything works fine.

    However when I enter the opposite command

    chkdsk C: /F /V /R /X >D:\chkdskout.log

    then at first the system is shutdown+restarted+chkdsk performed
    BUT the logfile is NOT written.

    I guess it is because the partially booted Win7 system at chkdsk time has no access to the partition D:

    Is there a workaround for this?

    The chkdsk output can be viewed at the screen. I want to have it in logfile as well.

    Peter,

    Have you tried looking in the Event Viewer under Application and searching for chkdsk?
