    Had a BSOD with MS Flight Simulator X running


    As the topic suggests I had a BSOD running FSX probably due to my overclock not perfectly stable yet.

    What I would like to know is how likely it is that a BSOD leave some corrupt files behind? Reason I ask is I have an image of my system partition and also a complete backup of my FSX folder which is on another disk so I could restore both the system image and the copy of the FSX folder but I did install some other programs after doing the backups and before getting this BSOD so I would rather not restore those copies unless it's highly likely it might have left some corrupt files behind.

    Anyone in here knows how good Windows 7 is in this regard and how big the risk for corrupt files is after a BSOD?

    Well does the pc have a read/write light? If it does try to remember if it was on or blinking before BSOD. I am not a BSOD expert so you should go and ask someone else. But before you go, I have one suggestion. Try chkdsk
    Disk Check But backup before this because all files within a bad sector will get deleted. But keep the old backup in case something goes wrong. Worst case scenario, the hard drive is damaged and needs a replacement.

    No idea if the disk light was on since the BSOD happened very quickly. I decided to restore from my backups just to be sure all is good down the road.

    Thanks for the tip regarding disk check but I'm not worried about my disks.
