Windows 7: chkdsk result analysis

chkdsk result analysis

Hi all,

I am having issues with 1 of my 2TB hard drive. So far i have migrated all data in it to another hard drive. I am often encountering hiccups/hangs whenever accessing that drive so i think there is a problem with it. I reformatted the drive and ran the disk error checking tool. It took hours to complete and i just saw this in the event viewer:

Checking file system on E: Volume label is New Volume. CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 5)... 256 file records processed. File verification completed. 0 large file records processed. 0 bad file records processed. 0 EA records processed. 0 reparse records processed. CHKDSK is verifying indexes (stage 2 of 5)... 280 index entries processed. Index verification completed. CHKDSK is verifying security descriptors (stage 3 of 5)... 256 file SDs/SIDs processed. Cleaning up 1 unused index entries from index $SII of file 0x9. Cleaning up 1 unused index entries from index $SDH of file 0x9. Cleaning up 1 unused security descriptors. Security descriptor verification completed. 12 data files processed. CHKDSK is verifying file data (stage 4 of 5)... 240 files processed. File data verification completed. CHKDSK is verifying free space (stage 5 of 5)... 488341254 free clusters processed. Free space verification is complete. Adding 34584 bad clusters to the Bad Clusters File. Correcting errors in the master file table's (MFT) BITMAP attribute. CHKDSK discovered free space marked as allocated in the volume bitmap. Windows has made corrections to the file system. 1953512447 KB total disk space. 21588 KB in 7 files. 16 KB in 14 indexes. 125823 KB in use by the system. 65536 KB occupied by the log file. 1953226684 KB available on disk. 4096 bytes in each allocation unit. 488378111 total allocation units on disk. 488306671 allocation units available on disk.

It says that there were bad clusters in my HD and windows did some corrections. I do not know what it did. Did it fix the problems found? Can I still use this hard drive?

Is that bad cluster number 34584 kb? If so, that is worrisome.

Download and install Acronis Drive Monitor (it's free). Run it and tell us the drive health percentage it determined. This is not destructive. It reports the "SMART" values.

You didn't fill in your specs, so I don't know what make hd is problematic. If it's not a WD, download and burn to cd the DOS Seatools iso. Run this as well (the long test), and tell us the findings.

it is a WD drive. I downloaded acronis and it says my HD health is 18% T_T

under the SMART tab there are 2 entries which are degraded.

current pending sector count raw:1446 value:196 threshold:0
uncorrectable sector count: 1418 196 0

Another of my WD 2TB HD shows that its health is 60% T_T

reallocated sector count 1 200 140 and has a status of FAIL
reallocation event count 1 199 0 degraded
current pending sector count 24 200 0 degraded
uncorrectable sector count 9 200 0 degraded

does it mean that those two are nearing its end and are unusable? Can they still be fixed?


rest of my specs:
Gigabyte P45-DQ6
Team Elite 2GB DDR2 RAM
Corsair HX620

Under 70% is my limit to replace.

If you have any warrantee value in either of them, RMA.

You can download the WD DOS bootable diagnostic iso and burn it cd and run its tests. But I'm afraid you will find no joy there.
