NTFS mobile drive dies ...

After NTFS error message shown on Ubuntu 9.10 when plugin in the mobile drive, I follow its instruction.

chkdsk /f
under windows

It detects lots of file errors and just die, Windows still can not see the drive.

I wonder this command actually does break my files since the implementation to access NTFS file system under Linux might (must) be different from Windows.

Switching back to Ubuntu, all files on the drive seems corrupted (partial images, I/O error)


Recovered most files after doing nothing but wait for one day, still some files lost.
Strange thing to me is those partial files come back as full files.
