Do these chkdsk messages mean that I need to replace the drive?

Or is it something that a reformat/reinstall of windows might fix? How do I determine that?

I've basically had a ton of chkdsk errors, and I can't tell if it is leftover from a faulty RAM stick that I removed a week ago, or if it's a failing disk that needs to be replaced (although it's a pretty new Western Digital Caviar Black drive).

I've posted several of the chkdsk and NTFS/Disk failure event logs below (.evtx files that will open in your event viewer).
  1. Disk-related events from the last several months (EVTX file)
  2. "Administrative Events" from yesterday (EVTX file) that show a ton of different errors (some of the ones that repeat dozens of times I pared down to 10 or so
Here is the story around the chkdsk ones:

Several times I did the following (which I think performs a chkdsk /f):
  • fsutil set dirty c:
    fsutil set dirty d:
    shutdown -r
That resulted in the multiple pairs of C/D "Cleaning up index... No problems found." messages. Then I ran the following twice (/f is not necessary as it is implied by /r):
  • chkdsk /r c:
    shutdown -r
Those resulted in similar results, although just before the event was logged, there is this Disk EventID 7:
  • The device, \Device\Harddisk0\DR0, has a bad block.
Then I ran a
  • chkdsk /b /r c:
Which resulted in a ton of deleting of corrupt attributes, so many that it appears the log is truncated. And this seems like about when programs started seriously failing, and I am having serious issues using the machine..


I ran a couple of chkdsk's from within windows using the Tools tab on the drive properties, which gives me the indices and "no problems found" messages, and another one of these:
  • The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk2\DR2.
All of this is in the events that are linked to above.

I ran the disk diagnostics app from Western Digital, which passed the quick and extended scans. HDTune passed the quick scan and is still green most of the way through a full scan.

I also ran sfc, which seemed to be unable to fix anything. I get the same results if I run it again:


C:\Users\khastie>sfc /scannow

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example
C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log


And here is the gist of what was returned in the CBS.log:

Should I try to do a SysRestore back to before I started having problems (it would be about 25 restore points back, on 12/16/10)? Seems like a bad idea, especially with a corrupt disk, and behavior like I describe in this very detailed post (mostly related to the bad RAM stick, but still very relevant to this current post).

It seems like I should just try reformatting and reinstalling windows (although if I am going to do that, why not give SysRestore a shot first anyway?)

But am I showing signs of having not only had a bad stick of RAM but also a failing drive? Aaargh, I tried to buy hi-quality parts for my first home-built system specifically to avoid this! Ah well - I'd just like some help in determining whether or not to send the drive back on warranty or whether I have a shot at recovery (which looks doubtful at this point).

Thanks in advance,

OK, and so it passed the SeaTools Quicktest, and I'll run the long test after HDTune's extended test is done (it's close and so far has found no errors). So assuming I get no errors with SeaTools, what then?

SeaTools passed the Long Driver Status test as well now. So I have now run a dozen chkdsks, sfc, HDTune, SeaTools and the Western Digital diagnostics tool. Is there something in particular that CrystalDisk might tell me that is different than the others?

Crystal Disk reads and displays the S.M.A.R.T. Status of your drive as well as the drive temperature
I'm sure it can't hurt to check from a "different Angle"

But if you are so concerned, back up the drive, reformat it (not Quickformat!) restore it with the backup
and see if it's still funky...if so get your warranty slip and RMA the drive

If there was anything wrong with the smart status, CD would have notified you (it simply reads out a piece of RAM which holds the readings of all sensors during the drive's life time)
Based on all the tests you ran so far I would say the hard drives (and to a certain degree the hard disk controller) are OK. The only thing I see: the Temperature your 3rd drive ST3320820A is a little high...not in an area to be concerned yet...but surely worth monitoring how it develops during a usual day.

Personally I would leave it at that for now but if you're really concerned, do what I mentioned before back it up and reformat the drive.

Yeah, I would love to leave it, but unfortunately there is definitely some corruption going on still. In the other post, there are more details on some corrupt system files. And also what about all those chkdsk errors? I'm still getting "Cleaning up indexes." What is that about? And what about the doozy of a chksdsk, part of which I'll repost here. Thoughts on trying System Restore versus a reformat?

Chkdsk:


Checking file system on C:
The type of the file system is NTFS.

One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You
may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended
that you continue.
Windows will now check the disk.

You haven't filled out your sys specs yet so I ask you here..how old is your PSU and how many Amps do you have on the 12V rail?

All those cross linked clusters point towards power failure/power instability.

It just hit me...you have 3HDDs and god knows what else running so chances are your power supply is over stressed or simply at the brink...Still strong enough for POST but perhaps not stable enough anymore in the long run.
Come to think of it...it could have even been the cause for the old drive to fail (But of course that's pure speculation on my part)
