The forced system drive (or root filesystem or in this case c:) filesystem check by HDD properties->tools->check now or by chkdsk c: /f is not executed at the next reboot. I'm aware I could check the filesystem by booting from another media, but that's not an option for telephone support. Any ideas why chkdsk might be skipped while enforced?

I can only assume the system drive isn't actually labeled as C: –  Ramhound Feb 23 '13 at 13:50
sorry, root drive == system –  Stefan K. Feb 23 '13 at 13:51
I would simply modify the registry key that handles this. There are dozens of questions on how to disable this scan from happening, just use the reverse procedure to enable it. –  Ramhound Feb 24 '13 at 19:58
