In this article, we’ll show you how Disable Windows 10 Startup Disk Scan. Windows usually performs a disk integrity check at startup if it detects a drive error or if the system does not shut down properly. However, sometimes a loop starts and a check is performed even though everything is fine. In this case, you should disable Windows startup disk scanning. It is not recommended to do this, but if you are sure that Windows offers disk scanning and that your disks and the data on them are fine, there is a solution.

Disk Check performs a complete scan of your hard drive, finding and fixing any problems. Once all issues are resolved, the disk scan is no longer scheduled when Windows starts. However, if Disk Checker finds problems that cannot be fixed, the system will notify you and suggest a backup. You should be prepared to lose your data if the disk scan fails. However, there are two ways to stop disk check from running at startup, one of them is easy. This article describes how to disable Disk Checker when Windows 10 starts.
