When you run the Chkdsk utility program in read-only mode on a volume that uses the NTFS file system, Chkdsk may not detect corruption in the disk structure.
This behavior can occur if the $logfile data region in the Master File Table is damaged.
To work around this behavior, run Chkdsk with the /f option to reinitialize the $logfile data region and to correct the corruption problem.
At a command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER
chkdsk volume_label: /v /fwhere volume_label is the label of the volume that you want to run Chkdsk on.
