I'm replacing an HDD with index errors.  Below is the chkdsk result.  I'd like to clone the HDD to the new one so I don;t have to go through the whole installation process again.  This this is a problem?

Samsung Series 9 running windows 8.1 pro


C:\WINDOWS\system32>chkdsk
The type of the file system is NTFS.

WARNING!  F parameter not specified.

run chkdsk /f and fix the error
i wouldn't be concerned by it
always have a backup though i don't see this as something to trigger a drive replacement
if it started showing bad clusters that's a different story

OK, thanks.  I had actually run it once already and was concerned to still find it.  Ran it again and it worked.  i guess maybe i don;t have to replace the HDD just yet.

Thanks
