Chkdsk the best ntfs index recovery tool for windows ntfs partitions?

Windows XP Pro, SP2 - NTFS
Hello, after I had two times the problem that my ntfs file index was currupted, giving me some hard time, I think it's time to look around:
What is the best way to recover from a broken index and/or $security file?
I already got acronis trueimage 9 running, so I had no "real" problem still I wonder what to do best in such cases.
chkdsk /r c: from the windows setup CD was able to recover the index, though I have got no 100% trust in MS tools: still ntfs bitmap file seems to keep some space occupied that should be already free as chkdsk told me. Several chkdsks did not solve that problem.
What would you do?
I'm NOT looking for some file recovery tools, I got already: O&O DiskRecovery V4 and PC INSPECTOR File Recovery 4.x, this is not my problem, the NTFS index was broken!
