Yep, saved me from having to reformat a PC plenty of times. Although, I'd never run chkdsk inside Windows anyway. I've always done it from the Recovery Console.

Indeed, talk about trying to get more hits to their site. Shabby sensationalist reporting style.

I already stopped reading The Inq, I don't even click on Inq links if I can avoid it. Got tired of Charlie's senseless anti-NVidia ranting.

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.
Well this should only affect using it on a secondary disk like they reported. Unless it has changed if you attempt to run chkdsk /r on your boot partition windows is going to run it on the next startup anyway. So that cuts out an even larger chunk of people.

I'm all for making it run faster when your on startup because you can't use the pc until it actually boots up. This was probably the reasoning for the tweaks.

In the days of a million and one tech sites, they need outrageous headlines more and more. Well THEY think they need them.

True and I don't condemn a site for just some of those. Have to be somewhat forgiving for it, because it is fairly common. But when the articles become tiresome to read, like on the The Inq, I took my interest and clicks to some other places instead. Although The Inq is more profiled as a tech gossip site, which I don't feel Dailytech is. Maybe I'm wrong though.
