If this is on an XP machine, close any programs that are open, click on START>RUN and type in chkdsk /f and click OK.
It may ask if you want to run it on the next start up, tell it yes, and then reboot your computer.
Depending on when and where you are getting the message, this may be early warning signs of a failing hard drive. I suggest you back up any important data as soon as you can.

Chrome.exe - corrupt disk the file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unuseable. Please run the Chkdsk utility on the volume C:.


While installing Google Chrome, the installation program detected problems with the file system and wants you to run chkdsk to repair them. Either go to a cmd prompt (or click on Start, Run) and key-in chkdsk /f The /f instructs chkdsk to fix any file system errors it finds as it checks your hard drive, You will receive a message the the disk is currently locked and asking you if you want to run chkdsk the next time the system starts, Respond with Y. Then restart your computer. You will receive a message that a disk check has been scheduled - allow it to proceed. Chkdsk will execute and repair any problems it finds with the file system. After completion, your computer will start up normally. Now you should be able to install Chrome.

Message= block 20560772 uncorrectable data hard drive


Hello sicily0144,

One possible solution is to open a cmd window and type chkdsk /f.

• The cmd window can be accessed by clicking on Start and Run. Then type cmd and click ok*

• Type 'Y' (Yes) if the following message displays when running chkdsk /f :
"Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)".

Chkdsk will try to fix the bad block problem when the computer is restarted.

If this solution is helpful please click a thumbs-up rating below.

Have a great day,

Manual steps to run Chkdsk at the command prompt

To repair errors without scanning the volume for bad sectors, at the command prompt, type chkdsk volume:/f, and then press ENTER.
Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message:
Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)

Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)

Hi,

Chkdsk is a utility designed to check the integrity of the data on a computer's hard disk drive as well as find and fix errors which could corrupt such data.

Running chkdsk on your Windows XP or 2000 system can repair minor Windows problems

There are several different methods that can be used to run chkdsk
start with this one..... chkdsk c: /p
1. Click the Start button then... Run
2. In the Run window's Open box... type in ... cmd
3. Click OK and an MS-DOS-style black screen will appear in a new window
4. Run chkdsk by typing one of the the following commands where the cursor is blinking...
chkdsk c: /p and then press ...ENTER...

This is a short test that will tell you whether or not a longer test is needed. If after the test is done and a message ...One or more errors detected on the volume... appears then proceed to one of the next options...read them both first

Please let us know if that was helpful enough.
Good Luck & Thanks,
Shiv.
