Over the last 4-6 weeks, I randomly get a message saying some file (not always the same) is corrupt and that I need to sign in as administrator and reinstall blah-blah. I then run CHKDSK and everything is fine. Earlier on, during boot, the  would CHKDSK run through all my files occasionally.  I built this computer over 2 years ago with an OCZ Revo drive (128mb) PCI express as my boot drive.  No bad sectors have been found.  Is this SSD trying to crash or is there something else going on.  Running Windows 7, I have a 1TB drive use for other programs.  The OCZ is about 1/2 full. 

Thanks,

Bill (40wnks)

IMO...corrupt files are routine...happens all the time for varying reasons.

 

When files are in bad sectors, the chkdsk /r command can try to move the files to sectors which are not bad and create no problems.

 

Running the chkds /r command on a 1TB drive...will probably take close to 3 hours, normally.

 

If you have programs on the 1TB drive...perhaps that's the drive that you should be concerned about, not the drive reflecting Windows.

 

If it were me...I'd follow up running chkdsk /r with diagnostic (long/extended test) on the 1TB drive.
