Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Do they end with .CHK? They may well be usable files, in *some* cases. Other times, they are just corrupt data. ‘DIY Data Recovery’ has a <a href=”http://www.diydatarecovery.nl/chkmate.htm”>tool </a>that can figure out what type of file they really are and rename them for you.

    To my exprereince every check disk create a log file after it has successfully completed the check. The same is applied to USB stick; after a check disk is finished, it then provides a final log file... The Log file actually gives specific details of system files/bad sector/specific file that has been corected or repaired. For furure references: the log file gives you a good indication of what and where the most problems are or related.
