Linux Today - Editor's Note: Microsoft Support? Ha! Better Use Linux Instead: "Oh, I got information all right, but every single one of the solutions needed the recovery console, which I could not get to thanks to the blue screen of stupid. Then, I tried broadening the search, and hit the jackpot. Apparently, there's a wonderful utility out there that will fix a corrupt NTFS table with a single command. Is it buried in Microsoft's labrynthian support site? Is it a third-part fix offered by those who profit from the 'all-powerful' Windows? Is it even something that Microsoft might have thought would be useful to have on it's own perfectly bootable install disk? No. It was ntfsfix, and it resides on, among other Live CD distros, Knoppix."
