That's one reason I was hoping backups existed BEFORE all of this happened.

Relax, fellows, it's being more an annoying inconvenience than anything else. I really don't think I am going to lose stuff on this disk.

I am doing a format on a client disk right now and as soon I move data back to his computer I will fix the disk and see what happens.

I will keep you posted.

Roland is right. BACKUP is a MUST HAVE. Failures happens all the time, specially on external HDD.

Ok, now I know that I absolutely cannot rely on Windows check disk. What I feared happened: it wiped my disk.

I put it to check the disk and as it was for almost 4 hours doing it and I had to reboot my PC I clicked the 'cancel' button (if there is a cancel button is because it can be used right?). So it stopped the checking and when I tried to access my disk it said 'Acess denied' and now I cannot reach anything on it.
