When Windows 7 does a disk check on boot time, where is the log afterwards? In the old times (XP) there was a log in the root directory, and even a special directory where the lost clusters were placed. Where is all this under win7?

Look in the Event Viewer. It may be in the Application or System log. I forget which. – user3463 Mar 3 '11 at 22:36

Start --> Run --> eventvwr --> Windows Logs --> Application --> Filter source: "Wininit".

It's there, but it doesn't seem to save the whole log, just like the beginning and then a "...". Pathetic... Time to switch to linux.. :p – Cray Mar 3 '11 at 23:39
