Regarding the CHKDSK /F problem in Windows 10 discussed here as a Known Issue--

windows-10-update-kb4592438

--unless I'm completely missing it (or it's since been added), there is nothing that tells me WHICH Group Policy to enable for managed systems. Only a couple of links about what Group Policy is and how to use it. (I learned all that 20 years ago!)

All it says is, "For enterprise-managed devices that have installed this update and encountered this issue, it can be resolved by installing and configuring a special Group Policy. To find out more about using Group Policies, see Group Policy Overview."

Does anyone know what Group Policy they're advising us to deploy?

    Looks like its packaged into the downloadable MSI (found in same document)

    Thanks; I could've sworn when I clicked that before it took me to generic info about Group Policy.

    I suppose it's possible the MSI sets a registry entry in the Policies branch, thereby making it a "special Group Policy".

    A little more specific deployment information from MS would be useful. Evidently, we push it as a Startup Script with a WMI filter for v2004 & v20H2, or via Computer/Preferences/Scheduled Tasks with ILT for the same versions.
