Windows 7: HDD check?

HDD check?

Dell performed an online diagnostics of my machine and results showed I had a corrupted C active partition.

Is there a Linux/Ubuntu like tool to pick any bad sectors, (IF any) before the drive dies and lose my data?

Thanks.

chkdsk /r is an excellent tool to re-allot bad sectors, but back up your data first. Or a Seatools for DOS boot disk will do it too. And it may be that the drive is failing and re-allotment will not help.

Do I run chkdsk /r in command prompt?

Thanks and apologize for my ignorance.

Yes. It will prompt for a reboot. But back up data first, as it is destructive.

It writes a log, I believe it is in events viewer. A better way to do it is from a WinPE or WinRE boot disk, where you can observe its progress at leisure.

Also, I would recommend examining the SMART attributes. You can do that with GSmartControl, Speccy, Defraggler, etc. That's one thing chkdsk doesn't tell you.

If there are no SMART attribute errors, the next step is to run a long self-test on the drive. This can be done by GSmartControl or Seatools from within Windows.
