    Windows 7 recently detected that one of my HDD was corrupted. It then ran it's system check services and fixed the errors. However I noticed it deleted a massive amount of data. I'm trying to retrieve the data and I noticed a found.000 folder. Would all my recovered data be in that folder? I remember a process similar to like downloading some obscure software to open up a CHK file or something which I also see in the found.000 folder along with some CHK folders which have files which are readily acccessible.

    If you are missing text files, then you can use Notepad to open the CHK files and see if they are what you are looking for.

    what are the CHK files? are they logs or actual files stored within them?

    I think they are fragments of recovered files.
