After scanning the system for errors, chkdsk answers are logged to the Event Viewer with a specific Even ID. With only a few clicks, you’ll find and open chkdsk results in Even Viewer. Here’s how.
In case of sudden power failure, corruption, or disk errors, Windows automatically runs the chkdsk utility. As needed, you can manually schedule chkdsk in Windows to repair disk error. It will scan for errors and fixes them when needed. Often, chkdsk can deal with lots of general performance issues helping Windows operate correctly.
After scanning the machine for errors, chkdsk logs the outcomes to Even Viewer. These event viewer chkdsk logs will help you in troubleshooting steps. In this quick guide, allow me to show the straightforward steps to find chkdsk results or logs in the event Viewer in Windows 10.

In the PowerShell window, execute the below command to see the chkdsk logs.
get-winevent -FilterHashTable @logname=”Application”; id=”1001″$_.providername -match “wininit”to a text file, execute the below command.
get-winevent -FilterHashTable @logname=”Application”; id=”1001″$_.providername -match “wininit”will be saved on your hard drive with the name “chkdsklog.txt”.
Close PowerShell when you are completed with the chkdsk logs.
That is all. As you can see, it’s very easy to see chkdsk logs in the event viewer and export those logs to a text file while using PowerShell’s event viewer command.
