Syntax:
chkdsk [Volume:][[Path] FileName] [/f] [/v] [/r] [/x] [/i] [/c] [/l[:Size]]

Parameters

Volume:
Specifies the drive letter (followed by a colon), mount point, or volume name.

[Path] FileName
Use with file allocation table (FAT) and FAT32 only. Specifies the location and name of a file or set of files that you want chkdsk to check for fragmentation. You can use wildcard characters (that is, * and ?) to specify multiple files.

/f
Fixes errors on the disk. The disk must be locked. If chkdsk cannot lock the drive, a message appears that asks you if you want to check the drive the next time you restart the computer.

/v
Displays the name of each file in every directory as the disk is checked.

/r
Locates bad sectors and recovers readable information. The disk must be locked.

/x
Forces the volume to dismount first, if necessary. All open handles to the drive are invalidated. /x also includes the functionality of /f.

/i
Use with NTFS only. Performs a less vigorous check of index entries, reducing the amount of time needed to run chkdsk.

/c
Use with NTFS only. Skips the checking of cycles within the folder structure, reducing the amount of time needed to run chkdsk.

/l[:Size]
Use with NTFS only. Changes the log file size to the size you type. If you omit the size parameter, /l displays the current size.

/?
Displays help at the command prompt.
