Well, because I figured the bad sectors were at the end of the disk past the 137 gb boundary. So if I shrink the drive below 137 gb, then create another partition in the bad sector area, I could do a format w/ a rescan for the bad sectors, and thus have windows unmark them. The files were on here because I format my OS drive often, and the 200 gb partition was made when the large lba support was enabled. The weird thing is, I had no problem accessing these files. Even the ones that I moved on without the 48 bit support I could still access just fine. It wasn't until chkdsk marked them as bad, probably marking parts of the MFT as bad too, and dumping that out. It seems that the files that are corrupt, are basically just pointing to the wrong place on the drive. Some of them are pointing to things that were deleted long ago :/ Also, all the new files that are corrupt, are basically all filled with FF's now. The old files that got corrupted (below the 137 gb boundary would be my guess), point to incorrect data. My guess here is because its due to the MFT corruption. I'm not sure if this corruption was caused by chkdsk marking the bad sectors, or by Partition Magic failing with a file attribute not defined error. The corruption might be a combination of the 2 ><. It also seems like the mirror MFT is a no go :/ Only thing I can think of is to go thru the drive clustor by clustor to try to find the files ><.
