User Tip – Modify CHKDSK delay timer.


Before starting a CHKDSK of a disk when its dirty bit is set, a 30 second
countdown timer is presented, giving you the chance to cancel CHKDSK. If you
want to modify the 30 second default, cut and paste the following code into
chktimer.reg file and run it.

REGEDIT4

“AutoChkTimeOut”=”0”

Set AutoChkTimeOut to the number of seconds you want CHKDSK to wait. See .REG files for background information on .REG files.
