I cannot defrag my hard drive (actually partition) C: with OO Defrag because when it does a chkdsk there are errors.
The machine is a HP Pavilion ZT3000 with a 60gb hard drive, and Windows XP Pro. The hard drive is partitioned into 4 logical drives.
The system boots fine and operates fine. Logical drive C: is the bootable partition on the drive. The other logical drives have no chkdsk problem.
When I run a CHKDSK /F or /R it does not fix the problem.
So the cycle is endless. I run CHKDSK /F or /R (during a boot), then run CHKDSK after the boot to see if it worked. The problems are still there.
I cloned this hard drive to another drive on another machine and get the same problem. So, I think the problem is in the Microsoft operating system and not a hardware problem with the drive.
I am concerned that eventaully the system will fail and I won't be able to boot or recover, even with a backup.
