    Hi all,

    I wasn't sure about using chkdsk C:/f /r /x to fix my disk corruption as I know /x dismounts the volume and I only have one partition which runs my OS and boots up. Is it necessary to do the /x operation?

    Can I simply run chkdsk C:/f /r /x in command prompt and it will ask me to run it on restart when I type Y and I'll be good to go once the repair is finished?

    On a side note sometimes I open up my laptop to clean my fans but I need to disconnect my HDD to do so, do I need to dismount my volume before unplugging it to prevent damage and if so how would I do this and would the volume be mounted again when I plug the HDD back in?
