Sometime the chkdsk has done a repair on pass one but I don't think it ever gets past pass two without complaining. Shouting that "There is nothing wrong with the drive" when clearly there is, will not help you at all. If I find a file that appears to be corrupted I will report it here however I don't expect to be doing that anytime in the near future!!

Yes but how would I know my brand new system had no problems if there were no reported problems as with mine? Deleting index entry PPC047~1.JPG in index $I30 of file 228429. solved New Internal Hard disk error. Deleting index entry PPC047~1.JPG in index $I30 of file 228429.

I would strongly advise you not to continue running check disk on the drive. Every week I've been doing routine maintenance. This is the user manual.

Nevertheless, as previously stated, my proof is 20 years of experience.

I mean when I have just run a check disk and it comes back with no bad sectors I think be told this 'sounds like a failing harddrive' sounds somewhat unlikely. My drive always finishes chkdsk.

Don't assume that age has anything to do with reliability or consistency of the data. Every week I've been doing routine maintenance. Never.The only thing I can think of that is different about my computer is the initial boot screen. useful reference Just alittle advice here to save you a little time, Firefox has settings built in to it so you can have all those files cleared automatically everytime firefox closes.

But, repeated failures to complete check disk is a sign the drive needs to be replaced. File verification completed. Plain and simple. I back up immediately, 20 years of tech has taught me a few things anyway.

That certainly does not mean i know everything nor that I am never wrong. Basically there is no indication whatsoever of any problem or data loss. Once reported, our moderators will be notified and the post will be reviewed. The best advice given is to immediately take the important information you have on the drive, back it up somewhere else, and replace the drive. 5 years is a good run
