Windows 7: pc froze and now running good after chkdsk

That is probably because some data is stored in bad sectors. I do not know if that diagnostic utility does the same thing as disk check's recovery of bad sectors, so I do not know how much data you might lose. Unfortunately, there is not much else you can do at this point unless Windows' disk check is able to recover the bad sectors. Run Disk Check with both boxes checked and see if Windows can recover the sectors. You may have to run it more than once to fix all disk errors.

Does the diagnostic utility still say there are errors with the disk after Windows said there were not?

You should be able to do a quick test. What happens when you try?

What happens if you run the bootable version of that program? Sometimes disk diagnostics do weird things in Windows and work fine when Windows is not running.

You could also do the USB one if you have a USB available. If not, I wouldn't worry about the disk if Windows says it has no errors unless you start seeing odd behavior. How is the system running, otherwise?

Can chkdsk /r mark bad sectors good if they are no longer bad?
My hard drive was having some problems, and chkdsk /r reported 60 bad sectors, so I copied it to a new hard drive using Clonezilla. The copy went fine, but chkdsk (the quick read-only test) reports the same 60 bad sectors on the new drive. Presumably it's only reporting these sectors as bad because...
