    Under Windows, a Volume (or partition) has a "dirty bit", or a small piece of static (non-volatile) memory. If the bit is set (i.e. is dirty (set to 1)), when the system reboots, the status of this bit tells the system whether to run CHKDSK or not. The bit remains set until CHKDSK is run, and then is cleared (or cleaned (set to 0)) as part of the process.

    so then a dirty bit is when the bit is set?

    That bit is referred to as the "dirty bit" to distinguish which piece of memory it is, and can be dirty or clean ... which I can see is slightly confusing.
