chkdsk f

Recommended Posts

After running this, I receive the following item in my event viewer:

 

Checking file system on C:

The type of the file system is NTFS.

 

The USA check value, 0x1, at block 0x3 is incorrect.

The expected value is 0xc5e.

 

I've googled this and have not found much info concerning this. I was wondering if wiping a drive and restoring an Acronis Image could fix this kind of problem. Or perhaps it's really nothing to worry about. Any insight would be appreciated.

There's this Google search which seems there's allot of people having the issue on Windows systems:

http://www.google.com/search?q=chkdsk+block+is+incorrect

 

My guess is you may have a bad block on your hard disk, and who knows if running chkdsk /r would solve the issue or not. You could also scan the hard disk for errors and check the S.M.A.R.T. status using the free edition of HD Tune, note the free edition is in the Download section.

Thanks for responding. I checked out most of those Google searches prior to posting. No one seems to have any answers or solutions. I ran chkdsk /r which didn't fix the problem. I ran SeaTools which has S.M.A.R.T Check, Short Drive Self Test, and Short Generic disk tests. My drive passed all. This is quite the mystery.

 

If it's a bad block, is there a possible fix? Thanks...

I've read in the past that it's "possible" for a full format to fix it, but that's a drastic approach.

The event viewer also reported "0 KB in bad sectors" and chkdsk completed successfully. Computer seems to be running OK. I guess I'll leave it alone for now.
