  1. My girlfriends has been booting and running extremely slow. I have ran a windows RAM test and came back with no errors. I have ran a CHKDSK command and it came back with orphan file errors but I am unsure of what to do next. Someone please help. When I run a check disk this is what I get:

    C:\windows\system32>chkdsk
    the type of the file system is NTFS.
    Volume Lable is Windows.

    WARNING! /F parameter not specified.

    Hi See if this helps. https://www.tekrevue.com/tip/fix-hard-drives-chkdsk-windows-10/
    PS If errors are found, you should watch the drive closely as it may be a sign the Drive is getting ready to fail. Here's link from HTG that explains chkdsk very well.
    https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/guide-to-using-check-disk-in-windows-vista/

    Simply running the CHKDSK command in Windows 10 will only display the disk’s status, and won’t fix any errors present on the volume. To tell CHKDSK to fix the drive, we need to give it parameters. After your drive letter, type the following parameters separated by a space each: “/f /r /x”.

    The “/f” parameter tells CHKDSK to fix any errors it finds; “/r” tells it to locate the bad sectors on the drive and recover readable information; “/x” forces the drive to dismount before the process starts.

    I would run chkdsk from admin account with /f switch on. Then examine result in event viewer before doing anything else. Slowness and fragments might be bad software, so I would scan drive after chkdsk.

    CHKDSK:
    When a system is booted, it inspects the DIRTY BIT to determine if the system was closed normally, as this bit gets reset normally.

    If it is OFF, the system will boot normally into the desktop and SET THE DIRTY BIT.
    OTHERWISE, most systems will invoke some kind of HD verification process before continuing.
    • Linux runs FSCK
    • Mac runs diskutil verifyVolume /
    • Windows runs CHKDSK c:
    When complete, the dirty bit is reset

    Some folks refer to indicators like the 'dirty bit' as a 'flag'.
