When manually initiating the file system check using a console command, the file system could be damaged under Windows 10 until recently, which has now been fixed by Microsoft with an update.
As planet3dnow.de reports, Microsoft has now resolved the problem according to the support entry with the number KB4592438 by means of a Windows update, which should also be automatically played out. As Microsoft explains in the support article, the problem affected both Windows 10[AMAZONAUTOLINK] from version 2004 (OS Build 19041.685) and 20H2 (OS Build 19042.685). According to a post on Twitter, the bug that has now been fixed has already been present in various builds of the Insider program for 8 months and was apparently recently transferred to the normal releases of the operating system update.
In a first test by planet3dnow.com after the announced error correction, the file system check showed again the well-known blue screen with NTFS error, which could also be due to a temporal overlap with the deployment of the update. To be on the safe side, affected users should double-check in Windows Update before using the said console command for file system checking with error correction again.
