Works? Strange things?

Many errors? All repaired? To be sure run the command again.

Output of the above commands is attached here.

chkdsk/f d: has been running for about 12 hours now. I have left it to run but posting the interim screenshot.

I have ordered for a harddisk enclosure. Do you think its alright if I remove the hardisk from the notebook and try to retrieve the contents by connecting it to another system?

Just what I thought. Win7 partition has disk errors. It says "file record segment xxx unreadable". Message starts at 3%. It continues to 99%?

Run command again please. All errors have been repaired? Is it a seagate or western digital disk?

Message has been stuck at 3% since last night. Though it is reading segment by segment slowly. Not all segements are unreadable but a few. So its not completely stuck as you can see from the screenshot. There are a lot of file segments and its taking its own time. Should I let it run its course or cold boot and try runningthe command again? Either ways I could do this only after I get home today.

I dont know what kind of hard disk it it. Would it be possible to findout using the model number (NP530U3C-A01UK) ? Or should I open it and find out?

Since you surmise that its windows partition which has errors, does it mean that I can salvage some data out of the harddisk by conencting it as extern HDD to another computer if all the errors are not fixed??

In that "command prompt" you can run notepad (just type notepad and press enter). Now do file/open and an open file dialog appears. Select the folders you wish and do copy. Now paste somewhere on external drive. Or use backup software like Macrium Reflect (bootable dvd) to make a backup. Report back if it fails (for example due to read errors).

Use SEATOOLS bootable CD (search yourself, otherwise I have the ISO). Or western digital data lifeguard. You can test for hardware errors. Report back the results

Thanks Kaktussoft. Will try them out and post results.

But do you see a problem if I can take the hard disk out, use the enclosure and connect it via usb to some other system to copy my files?
