Submission + - Microsoft Redesigns CHKDSK for Windows 8, Improves NTFS Health Model (hothardware.com)

MojoKid writes: "Microsoft can't do anything to magically make hard drives stop failing when parts go bad, but Redmond is rolling out a new NTFS health model for Windows 8 with a redesigned CHKDSK tool for disk corruption detection and fixing. In past versions of the CHKDSK and NTFS health model, the file system volume was either deemed healthy or not healthy. In Windows 8, Microsoft is changing things up. Rather than hours of downtime, Windows 8 splits the process into phases that include "Detect Corruption," "Online Self-Healing," "Online Verification," "Online Identification & Logging," and "Precise & Rapid Correction.""
