Chkdsk Problems

Win Xp x64 is the o/s and Samsung F1 Spinpoint is the harddrive.

I'm writing this on my blackberry so bare with me.

Anyway Xp reported to me that some files where corrupted and suggested that I use the chkdsk command this I did it told me the volume was 'dirty' and I left it for some hours to fix nothing happened from stage 4.

I carried out a Repair install which accepted it fine imo the file transfer rate was slow. Yet up on restart up came the chkdsk tool again!! How do I get rid of the chkdsk prompt?

Another theory I have is image the said drive to back it up to re-install then grab my data via the image.

What am I options please?

Cheers Rob

Yes remove old drive, insert new, install XP

refit old drive (set as slave)

your new version of XP should then see the drive.

Access Files If you get Access Denied in WinXP Pro. Try “taking ownership” of the file/folder before it can be accessed. First of all go to Folder Options, View Tab and in the Advanced Settings at the end, untick “Use simple file sharing”, which will allow the Security Tab to be shown in the file’s properties. Also, in Folder options, make sure hidden and system files can be viewed. To take ownership of the file (it’s best done at the folder level), right-click it, Properties, Security Tab, add your user name, fill in all the permissions and Apply. You can now access it. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308421/en-us

Access Files XP Home Simple file sharing is enabled by default in XP Home Note You must be logged on to the computer with an account that has administrative credentials. If you are running Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, you must start the computer in safe mode, and then log on with an account that has Administrative rights to have access to the Security tab. or http://www.whitsoftdev.com/rshx/ or http://www.mydigitallife.info/2006/08/03/enable-and-display-security-tab-in-windows-xp-home-edition/ and click on the link at part one and download the required program. Follow the instructions and the security tab will be enabled. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY OR YOU COULD DENY ACCESS TO ALL YOUR FILES.

It's established that the Drive has got bad sectors.

Is there a tool that can repair these Sectors from the Samsung website or is my hard drive borked? - I could then send it back to Samsung from them to replace it.
