I am using windows xp sp3, and when i try to defrag or check disks for error, I get this error: "Windows was unable to complete the disk check" . So, I ran cmd>chkdsk /r, and on reboot i got this error "unable to run because disk is raw".

If I go under Right-click Computer > Manage > Disk Management, the status says healthy.

is my only option at this point to go ahead and clean install xp, and do you think that my hd maybe nearing the end?

thanks

Go to manufacturer of hdd's website, download and run the diagnostic
tool for the drive/s. This will confirm or deny a hdd problem, then go from
there..
