Can chkdisk be made to display the files that are affected?


Open a command prompt and run chkdsk /?

Or even press the F1 key and search for chkdsk. The /? provides the current argument list for the binary.

The search for the phrase “windows chkdsk files affected” returned this result at the top: Is there a list of what the output(s) of CHKDSK answers mean – Microsoft Answers

Use the /v flag when you run chkdsk. This will use the verbose output mode, and tell you what records are affected (note that chkdsk does not affect files per say, it fixes the MFT)
