There are various reasons why I know I have a problem with my hard drive (various programs have different kinds of read/write problems, and sometimes I get explicit errors about the hard drive). I clearly need to run chkdsk /f. I know that I should back up all my data before doing this (and I have) but it is still going to be a pain if I have to restore it all.
One directory I know has a problem is C:\Documents and Settings\myusername - if I try and look at it in windows explorer I get an "access denied". I can still access all the subfolders (otherwise I wouldn't still be able to use my data!), but not by drilling down from C:\Documents and Settings\myusername - I have to use shortcuts that go deeper in.
My question is this: what are the chances that the repair is going to wipe out all my data? Having a problem with the root of my userdirectory is making me nervous that it will get destroyed in the repair process.
