Viewing and Accessing CHKDSK Log Events on Windows 7

To easy access your past log events for CHKDSK, this can be accomplished by using a PowerShell command (Powershell ships with the OS on Windows 7)

Copy/paste: “powershell.exe” into your Start button “search programs and files” field

Open PowerShell.exe and type the command below (again by copy/paste function -> Right click the command window and past):

Get-EventLog -LogName Application -Source wininit | select -Last 1 -ExpandProperty Message

This will get the latest chkdsk log

Hope this helps someone!! 🙂
