Windows Server 2016 - CHKDSK error on OS partition - "Snapshot was deleted. A snapshot error occurred while scanning this drive. CHKDSK cannot continue" How to fix this issue? This is a standalone server. No iSCSI and no hyper-v. Running from safe mode causes same error. Otherwise the server is running fine, but cant run chkdsk in command prompt nor in c: properties in file explorer. It fails.

    Might try booting the install media, and run chkdsk from the recovery console command line.

    @WarpedTrekker
    Hi,

    It could be a bad drive.
    I would suggest you backup your files from it, then try deleting the existing partition, create a new one, and see if that allows it to work normally.

    Hope above information can help you.
