Windows 7: Chkdsk Errors

Hi

Am I missing something here? Why don't you just run Chkdsk on your drive from within My Computer and let it rebuild the Indexs on reboot?

Listen to UKmedia. Chkdsk will rebuild the indexes and everything will be "Hunk Dory".

As I understand it he indexes are like page numbers in a book so that windows knows where the files are

That is what I believe to be the case yes, we won't know for sure until CHKDSK has attempted to fix the drive

Well, I did it, and after I used Take Ownership on the folder found.000 (recovered files), it showed me all the files it managed to recover. The strange thing is, I've never seen these files before. Some of these names of the files go by 'fallout_table1.dx80.vtx'. I have never seen this file before. The only thing I can relate this file to is that I have an ISO of my Fallout 3 DVD on the external drive. That's it. There are plenty of other files, only consuming about 11mb in total though... Would anyone know perhaps what these files are?

If you now run disk Cleanup, it should get rid of any temporary files created by chkdsk.

A little late, but you can get file info from NTFS inodes using a Linux LiveCD that has ntfsinfo installed (most do).

If you need more info than ntfsinfo -i gives, you can use this script...

Well, after going on TechNet to see all the chkdsk commands, using /r shows the directory and file affected while doing chkdsk. Oh well, nothing damaged really I guess, since I don't recognise any of the affected files. Deleted! Thanks for the help anyways guys.
