Windows runs scandisk at boot whenever I mount it in Linux and copy files into it

Well its really annoying considering Windows boots really slow even without scandisk.

With scandisk:

Wait for program to start, about 15 seconds.

You click cancel - the program doesn't respond.

You wait for scan to start. while clicking cancel, after 10 seconds, it decides to close.

The program takes 10 more seconds to close.

ADD + 2 minutes of booting with useless services.

So yeah. Why does it run scandisk? Even when I reboot in Windows cleanly, but into Linux and mount the FAT32 partition, then copy files into it

Any possible solutions? I have saved files into the FAT32, but it doesn't run scandisk for that, however if I copy something into it (even in the same partition) into the partiton. it does. Yeah, only for copying, quite peculiar.

This may be an obvious question, but did you make sure to unmount the disk after you were done with it?

The only other thing I can think of is maybe it wasn't mounted as fat32 (vfat, I think it's called in Linux), but as msdos or something else.
