Thread needs solution

I ran a ckkdsk /r on an SD card today and was presented with the attached window.

It says "An attempt by 'C:\Windows\System32\chkdsk.exe' to modify MBR of your disk was successfully blocked.

Is this something I should be concerned about? chkdsk stopped. I re-ran the chkdsk and it completed successfully.

Hello Anthony,

thank you for your posting! You can add chkdsk.exe to the list of trusted processes as per 60193: Acronis True Image 2018, 2019 and 2020: Active Protection blocks legitimate applications

Thank you, but I would think Acronis should be aware of chkdsk.
