Hi, all. I am using Windows XP SP 3 and went to my externally-connected internal HDD via a USB dock. For some reason it said one folder, "Logs", was
corrupt and unreadable, so I did CHKDSK /F and here are the results:
CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3)...
File verification completed.
CHKDSK is verifying indexes (stage 2 of 3)...
Deleting an index entry from index $O of file 25.

4096 bytes in each allocation unit.
134217471 total allocation units on disk.

Gladly it found files in the "Logs" folder and placed them in a folder inside \found.000\ This is a brand new HDD that I had stored for a few weeks before I started using it. Obviously I don't want there to be any physical errors generally, but especially so since it is so new. Since it says "0 KB in bad sectors.", am I correct in thinking it was a file problem that was corrupt, and NOT the physical disk platter?
P.S. Can someone fix the formatting on here? I type my post in Notepad first then copypasta into here, and it looks like this.
P.P.S. I know support for XP has been stopped. That is not my question here.
