Specs: Windows 10

I ran chkdsk /r on hard drive which got some bad sectors and this is screenshot for last moment before i stopped chkdsk. i canceled chkdsk after ran some minutes because i heard run chkdsk /r on hard drive with bad sectors can lose data.

So according to this chkdsk prompt window screenshot, was that possible about that data was removed/fixed or anything changed by chkdsk? i am asking about that chkdsk could do something to data even no errors are found on prompt window.

✔ Best Answer
Do you have a backup of your DATA??

"CHKDSK will attempt to recover data from bad sectors when using the /r parameter, but some data may be corrupted and unrecoverable. Therefore, make sure to always keep good backups of all of your important data, and don’t blame CHKDSK (i.e., kill the messenger) for confirming that your PC’s hard drive is about to kick the proverbial bucket."

Finding bad sectors with chkdsk won't cause you to loose data. It's an indication that you ARE loosing data.
