Why?

Apparently it's a quirk in Windows that causes some sectors of a HDD to be ignored on each boot, it's random each time and chances are chkdsk doesn't see them on it's first try.

Seriously considering getting a project car for the summer. Going to ask my dad to help me out when I get home for the summer.

Seriously doubting this. You can't just ignore random sectors and expect the machine to boot.

I'm pretty sure it's free space every time.

EDIT: Herp. I meant to type "parts of sectors".

You can if the sectors are labeled as raw/unallocated.

Yeah but then it's not random and of little interest to chkdsk to begin with.

I learned that I gave birth to a zombie. She's cutting teeth and instead of crying, she wants to chew on me. By gnawing on my hand is how I found out that she had a tooth come through overnight.
