Default Win 8/10 check for disk errors

According to this article, running chkdsk is not necessary in Windows 8/10 because these systems use Resilient File System (ReFS). The article also states that you can still run chkdsk if you want to. So I did, and the C drive finished in less than a minute. This does not give me a sense of reassurance, but that's what I know so far.

I noticed the speed of the Command Line check the other day after my Windows 10 32 bit crashed when changing user desktops and on the next restart it went to check the disk. And it only checked the disk the OS was on.
