Q. Need Help Repairing NTFS.

4. If the returned message indicates that the volume is dirty, go to step 5
5. Next type "chkdsk <drive letter> /f /x"
If you get this below answer YES.
6. After that finishes, repeat step 3.

"Chkdsk /f" forces
Chkdsk to run whether or not the flag is dirty--- it's a way to ensure that
errors are fixed, regardless of what the flag says.
"Chkdsk /x" goes a little further and helps ensure that any files that were left
open get closed; it actually implies "/f" so you don't need the /f if you're
using /x .
With either /f or /x, at the end of the run, Chkdsk should set the flag to clean.
