It's getting to be quite a while since that bug in the Windows utility occurred, so I decided last week to check if it has been repaired yet. Here's what resulted:
One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You
may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended
that you continue.
Windows will now check the disk.
CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3)...
File record segment 266336 is unreadable.
591104 file records processed.
File verification completed.
Deleting orphan file record segment 266340.
And there it has sat for days. Which is to say, they haven't done a thing.
It may well be there's a physical error on the drive (a 1 TB WD Black). But just sitting there doing nothing and allowing no way out is hardly appropriate. I have a 2 TB WD Black that I can probably copy the drive's contents to eventually, though it's currently my rarely-connected Hackintosh drive and will have to be carefully dealt with.
My question: can anyone advise me on what software is available to correct the situation where Windows sees that problem, and if possible fix it, or at least one of those two? Any help would be appreciated.
