Microsoft can not do anything to magically make hard drives stop failing when parts go bad, but the Redmond outfit is rolling out a new NTFS health model for Windows 8 with a redesigned CHKDSK instrument for disc corruption spying and fixation.
“We have completely experienced the thwarting that could be stimulated by an forced CHKDSK that pops altho restarting a pc at home or a server at the agency. On the far side the surprisal, there is the break while waiting for the action to ended and Windows to be uncommitted. With Windows 8, we provide fast result to these troubles when they grow, casting the exploiter in hold and causing arrangements more usable and more ascendable,” Microsoft state in a blog post.
In previous editions of the CHKDSK and NTFS health example, the filing system volume was either deemed healthy or not healthy. In Windows 8, Microsoft is changing things up. Rather than hours of downtime, Windows 8 splits the process into phases that include “Detect Corruption,” “Online Self-Healing,” “Online Verification,” “Online Identification & Logging,” and “Precise & Rapid Correction.” The web log covers up these phases in contingent, but the big bear away from this is that a big part of the detecting and result action will happen in real time and in the screen background, so you can keep plugging away at that TPS article.
“In Windows 8, we have made the detecting and corecting of the filing system faults more transparent and less intrusive,” Microsoft claims. “We trust these alterations will be a welcomed sweetening for you and we look forward to finding out your feedback.”
If it acts as advertized, the fresh NTFS wellness model will be a welcome enhancement, indeed.
