    I have a 1 month old raptor 74GB drive and I'm having some problems:

    Almost every time I run CHKDSK, I will find errors or problems. (running chkdsk C: in cmd)

    First I got this:
    chkdsk c:
    The type of the file system is NTFS.

    WARNING! F parameter not specified.
    Running CHKDSK in read-only mode.

    CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3)...
    File verification completed.
    CHKDSK is verifying indexes (stage 2 of 3)...
    Deleting index entry bookmarks.bak in index $I30 of file 29111.
    Deleting index entry bookmarks.html in index $I30 of file 29111.
    Deleting index entry cookies.txt in index $I30 of file 29111.
    Index verification completed.

    Errors found. CHKDSK cannot continue in read-only mode.




    THEN!, 5 minutes later (I never ran it with /f) I got this:
    The type of the file system is NTFS.

    WARNING! F parameter not specified.
    Running CHKDSK in read-only mode.

    CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3)...
    File verification completed.
    CHKDSK is verifying indexes (stage 2 of 3)...
    Index verification completed.
    CHKDSK is verifying security descriptors (stage 3 of 3)...
    Security descriptor verification completed.
    CHKDSK discovered free space marked as allocated in the volume bitmap.
    Windows found problems with the file system.
    Run CHKDSK with the /F (fix) option to correct these.

    NOW, a few hours later when I run it I get no errors.


    And I just ran it again, (10 minutes since before) and I get the same error as the 2nd one I posted.

    I have run boot chkdsk w/ the /f command.

    occasionally it will fix stuff, sometimes it finds ntohing.

    then 20 minutes laters I get errors like this again
