    You will find information in it about chkntfs.exe, a command line utility to exclude drives from chdsk, but also about the relevant registry keys and about chkdsk in general.

    It's actually a different function named autoscan.

    Disable auto scan:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ControlSession Manager
    On the right side look for (or create the dword value): AutoChkTimeOut
    Double Click an set to 0 (zero) to disable.
