There's nothing significantly wrong there - unused index entries aren't uncommon.

Yeah, the index problem isn't that significant, although I don't like it when I see that.

The free space marked as allocated is more significant.

So, what does that mean, practically speaking?

File system issues on that volume. I'd give this a run first:

There may not be anything wrong at all. But it's a quick way to see what the HDD's SMART knows about the health of the drive. If it all looks good, then run another chkdsk to see if all errors have been cleaned up.

DiskInfo says the drive status is good. Attached is a screenshot of the results. Also attached is an example of what Drive Meter looks like whenever I start my computer. (The blue is disk utilization. You can see it hitting 100% for periods of 30 seconds or more) That screenshot was taken about 3 minutes hitting the desktop. Shortly after that, the disk usage subsided. Is it a normal thing to see so much 100% disk utilization for that long after startup? At the time I took that screenshot, desktop icons were just finishing up loading (Granted I do have a lot of them, and several sizable files on my desktop).

Doing anything with windows updates also seems to drive disk utilization to crippling levels for no apparent reason. Even downloading updates in the background can cause problems.

CrystalDisk looks good. Drive appears healthy. Go ahead and run another chkdsk to see if the previous run cleaned everything up.

You can use Resource Monitor to check disk access. It'll tell you what files are being read/written to.

You'll almost always get that when the OS frees space from index entries, as it holds the sectors free for the non-existent entries

That looks pretty much fine, to me - the lost entries could be because of a BSOD, or a sudden shutdown?

Probably because of a BSOD or 5.
