Windows 7: corrupted files after BSOD

corrupted files after BSOD

Hey All,

My computer BSOD'd on the 19th and i wasnt quick enough to read what the error code was before it restarted. what should i be looking for in the event viewer>windows logs (ex. application, security, setup, system, forwarded events etc.)?

I can provide more information about the BSOD once i can locate the event in the event viewer


*after the computer recovered, i used the computer as normal. i played a song at random in itunes and when it got to a certain part, it skipped to the next song in queue and when i opened that mp3 file in audacity, i saw it was corrupted at the skip point. also my VLC player would crash when i dragged a MP3 file or a folder containing a MP3 file into the playlist. i only fixed this with a complete reinstall of VLC. not knowing how many MP3 files were potentially corrupted, i compared folder sizes between the local folder and my backup copy on my external. BUT BOTH THE FOLDERS WERE IDENTICAL IN SIZE

i dont know if the corrupted MP3 file/VLC player was an isolated incident or there are other files that were corrupted when it BSOD'd.

are there software to identify corrupted files?

Running chkdsk c: /f will get most of them

File is registered and its size as well.
Size of a file doesn't change if it has gotten corrupted.

(correct me if I am wrong, thanks)
