hard disk corruption - advice needed

Posted on 2014-03-10
Last Modified: 2014-03-26
I noticed some ntfs errors in my event log, and when I ran checkdsk without telling it to reboot and repair I got the attached message.

Am I going to run a high risk of crashing my server if I tell it to repair?

Not in my experience. I always let chkdsk correct errors.

But if stuff hits the fan, you still have backups, correct?

As its system drive, you need to reboot the server to complete the CHKDSK.
