    chkdsk /R reads the drive and tries to move data to new areas if the block is bad, then it takes the block out of use.

    You will have to answer Yes to run at boot.

    Restart your machine to let it run.
    If you read all the posts Bill, I Told her that at least 3 times. But She decided to reinstall her Windows 7 using her Windows 7 install disks. She seems to be very happy to be back on Windows 7

    I thought I did read all the posts

    I didn't see chkdsk /R anywhere in the thread.
    If there are bad spots on the drive ... they should be repaired. A Clean install only masks the issue.

    Hey Bill your correct, I never asked her to use the /R switch only the /F switch. Thought I did, but she was having problems even trying to run with the /f switch. So guess I forgot. Sorry Bill
