      That was interesting! I used fsutil and chkdsk r/ b/ and nothing seemed to clear the error flag so I downloaded Windows 8 again to do a clean install. This time the country message didn't show so it went through all the stuff that showed up on the first installation but at the very end I had a message that it couldn't install Windows 8 and everything was set back to where it was originally. However, the hard drive error flag is gone and chkdsk comes up clean.



      plz post the exact step by step method which is telling in above post ...thanks

      waiting for ur rply

Backups appear to be working fine now (I've been backing up to 2 external drives because I am expecting that one of these days this drive will fail).

    I'm not going to be much help. To be honest, I don't know enough about all this to recommend anything. I just went through the things that arachnaut listed and when none of that removed the flag I tried to reinstall Windows 8. As noted, that wasn't successful but the flag was gone. However, I now cannot open the Event Viewer. Not sure what other problems there might be but I'm guessing that my 7 year old hard drive is failing. Perhaps others can offer helpful advice. Thanks!

    Reviving an old thread -

    I keep getting this error too. The problem is it's checking my Drobo (RAID device) for errors. I dont want it to check my Drobo. Is there any known way to have it check only the "C" drive (omit the "D" drive)? My C drive is a SSD.

    Windows 8.1


    I just got the same error for the first time on Windows 8.1, and I noticed reading the previous comments, that dual booting might be one of the culprits.

    I have Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 installed on 3 entirely separate drives (entirely, so only the respective drives were plugged in during install, so they would have their own boot records).

    Is this separation interfering with Windows somehow? I really hope Windows doesn't mess up the boot records while trying to "fix" these "errors".

    This is probably not related, but I see this when I boot from a USB flash drive that has a Linux Live CD ISO.

    For example, I install the Linux Mint 17 Live CD to a flash drive and start from that device.

    The Live CD runs and, unlike a real CD which is Read-Only, Linux seems to write something to this Flash Drive.

    When you quit Linux, it doesn't seem to flush the I/O buffers or something, so you get a corruption of the Flash Drive.

    Fortunately, there's no real damage and the repair finds no problems - but it is a nuisance.
