Is my Hard Drive okay? Long Story need HELP
« on: March 14, 2019, 05:01:08 PM »
I have 2 1TB HDD NTSF ||| Over night I was compressing a file really hard, like 7zip said it might take two days (on drive E:). While this process was going I had several other applications open. I wake up to find a my computer turned off, when I turn it back on a BSOD with the error "MEMORY_MANAGEMENT". I reboot and Windows updates itself and things are starting up fine until I get a notification from Windows to scan my hard drive. I check both my drives with chkdsk in read only mode and one returns an error of volume bitmap incorrect. My computer then tells me via notification to restart to repair which I do and again things boot back up. I want to note at this point my computer even though it only has HDDs was booting extremely fast, like I have never before seen. I check my important files and they are still there on both drives. I chkdsk my C: drive via command prompt and get the only error of "The master file table's (MFT) BITMAP attribute is incorrect". Again I did this in read-only. I check both of my drives using the the tool when you right click on the drive and go to properties - tools - error checking. Drive E: is all good. Drive C: said there were errors but they were fixed online and that the drive is ready to use, here were the details:

Are my drives failing because the chkdsk results are contradicting the other built in tool. Remember I did the chkdsks in READ ONLY MODE

I'd run it again as chkdsk /f which will repair any file structure anomalies but it will also report if it has found any KBs in bad sectors.

A read only mode would also report this but you haven't included that part in your thread.

To view the chkdsk log, open Event Viewer and ensure Event Viewer (Local) is highlighted in the left pane - if it isn't then just click on it.

When it has read the data, expand Windows Logs - Application/Action/Find and type chkdsk or wininit into the Find box and press enter.

Cancel the Find box and read the report in the scrollable window below.

If it reports any bad sectors then create a system image immediately onto external media and then perform a chkdsk /r

Depending upon where it finds bad sectors, this can sometimes result in lost data as it moves data from the bad sectors.

A program I use occasionally is the trial version of HDSentinel which will give a written report.

I have this saved in my Downloads folder to use as and when, having uninstalled after use to stop the clock on it.
