Determining Which Sectors/Files are Corrupt on Hard Drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to determine which files are corrupt on my hard drive. After running a CHKDSK scan, I am receiving this line 5 different times in Stage 1: "Attribute record <128, ""> from file record segment XXXXX is corrupt" (with various values for XXXXXX). How can I determine what the different values mean?

    Is there another way to determine what sectors or files are corrupt? I do not want to just repair, but also determine where the error lies.
