    Hey,

    You need to run chkdsk via Powershell targeting CSV mount point. As an example:

    chkdsk.exe C:\ClusterStorage\Volume1 /scan  
    

    This command will scan the issues on CSV. Check the following articles for more information:

    I have to remove the storage from CSV then it will appear as drive let us say E: then I ran chkdsk for this E: drive and then I added this cluster storage into CSV.
