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 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
