It means that Windows thinks the disk is unformatted or has a file system other than NTFS/FAT.
Can you provide more information about what was on the disk?

Hello sle3pingz,

That would be correct. "0kb in bad sector" means that the HDD doesn't have any bad sectors, and all is fine with it.

You're welcome.

No, it's just a scan. You will not have to do anything else.

Hi Brink.

I am very impressed by your actively maintained blog—and your timely and polite replies to everyone's questions.

May I ask you a question? Until very recently, I had been using an XP machine. Thanks to a very old and excellent article in Maximum PC, I had got used to using Task Scheduler to perform an automated chkdsk with /f and /r once a week, at night.

It involved creating a batch file with the following commands:
echo y|chkdsk C: /f /r
shutdown /r

With my new computer, I am now getting used to Win 7. Never too late, as they say ;-) Unfortunately, neither the above batch file nor any other instruction I can find from trawling on the internet seems to have been able to achieve the same simple thing I used to be able to do on my computer, ie. create a scheduled task that reboots the computer and then automatically does a chkdsk with the fix and recover options. I have found several solutions on the internet. The trouble is, none of them appears to work :-(

I wondered if you might be able to help??? Hopefully...
