What do those commands do, exactly?

chkdsk C: /F [repair mode] . . .
This Repairs any errors [file system errors or corruptions] on the OS drive but DOESN'T scan for any bad sectors.

chkdsk C: /R [repair mode] . . .
This Repairs any errors [file system errors or corruptions] on the OS drive and DOES Scan for any bad sectors. It then attempts to repair or recover any readable information [implies /F].

I hope this helps!

"...chkntfs..." was the culprit? Where does that utility come from?

It EXCLUDES drive C:\ from from the chkdsk scan.
That is why I asked him to post a screenshot of the Disk Management.
Depending on the screenshot, he can run chkdsk to EXCLUDE the drive that has Ubuntu installed on it!

chkdsk
/r includes /f
/r much longer run-time
I'd check Drive for failure.

There are two types of disk failures: Logical and physical.
Check disk (chkdsk c: /f) looks for logical problems on a partition (C:) and fix them. It also can find bad clusters, bad blocks, bad sectors etc but it can't correct them as they are surface (physical) problems on a dying disk that can't be fixed by any tool.
As check disk only scans and corrects a specific M$ partition, there is no chance it can damage a Linux partition.

Let check disk scan your Windows partition. Pay attention on the results, specially bad clusters, bad blocks, bad sectors etc

Megahertz07, I agree!
Me:
I usually run chkdsk & seatools both free, great status data on drives!

Awhile back, GRC's SpinRite purports to either refresh a particular sector or have the HDD mark it off-limits to any/all OS. HardDisk Sentinal and a few other products seem to promise at least "telling" HDD mobo to mark bad sector as forever off-limits.

Do either of these pose a risk of deleting my Ubuntu partition?

Disk check only scans a windows type partition. It won't do anything on a Linux partition.
