Check the NTFS file system with CHKDSK

      CHKNTFS drive: [...]
      CHKNTFS /C drive: [...]
      CHKNTFS /X drive: [...]
      CHKNTFS /t[:Time]
      CHKNTFS /D

   drive  Specifies a drive letter.
/C Check - schedules chkdsk to be run at the next reboot.
/X Exclude a drive from the default boot-time check. Excluded drives are not accumulated between command invocations. /T Change the Autochk.exe initiation countdown time (time in seconds) If you don’t specify Time: displays the current countdown time.
/D Restore the machine to the default behavior; all drives are
checked at boot time and chkdsk is run on those that are dirty. This undoes the effect of the /X option.

If no switches are specified, CHKNTFS will display the status of the dirty bit for each drive.
