    I know this is silly, but what happens if you change the command to add the drive letter, i.e. CHKDSK C: /F ?

    (Just thinking you may not be in the root when you run CMD, or some other Windows strangeness...)

    Using the /r option instead of /f you are running CHKDSK in five-stage mode (instead of three-stage with /f switch).

    Have you tried using the chkdsk /r /f options "/f" for fix and "/r" for recover ?

    Note, to complete repairs on the "C:" drive, you maybe required to re-boot and chkdsk will re-run at startup.

    Another possible way is to run chkdsk from Windows. Pull up Explorer, Select "C:" drive and right click on properties. Click Tools tab, Select "Error-checking" and select both options (See picture below).

    Remember: using the cmd prompt from windows opens a shell UNDER windows, you may not have access to all of windows files when running in this mode.
