    I am getting an error in the cmd when I performed a CHKDSK
    The error is WINDOWS discovered free space area marked as allocated in MFT
    I tried using the scan disk option and performed a thorough scan but again when i run that in the cmd i get the same error . I also did a recovery console where it said that windows has fixed one or more errors but still the problem persisits. Can somebody help me out? Just today i re-installed my OS.
    :(

    Hiya

    Are you still having this problem? If so, what is the exact error message? is this it:

    Insufficient disk space to fix master file table (MFT). CHKDSK aborted.

    I assume you're running it as in this link:
