Have unsubscribed DailyTech's RSS feed after scanning that stupid article..
chkdsk /r basically is repair mode. Apparently if you are looking to use other applications and use the system while the computer is in repair mode, the guy who raised the "issue" claimed it was "slow".
The microsoft dev team responded saying this was by design so that the chkdsk repair could be performed more quickly.
This will typically affect people who have less than 4GB of system memory, who have admin rights and who have a necessity to run chkdsk.
