Check File System feature is most commonly used to verify file system integrity and to locate bad sectors on hard drives. It also helps in recovering corrupted data whenever a system failure occurs that involves data integrity.

About Check File System

When running computer, users may receive a message that indicates there is a damaged file system or the partition need formatting before access which might be caused by abnormal shutdown. At this time, users may try to repair the error by employing the Check File System function which aims to checking and repairing some mistakes to ensure the integrity of the file system.

Note: This function can only be used when the selected partition has a drive letter. For the partition without a drive letter, users need to appoint drive letter before they can use this function.

See the MiniTool Partition Wizard Tutorial to know how to complete this task.
