Either my SSD or Win8 had an acid trip and things went haywire for quite a a while.
I just received a part for my Win8 PC and installed it. It booted fine and everything seemed OK. After a while I noticed that it threw up a notification that it needs to be restarted due to disk errors!
Took a look at the event log, and there was a truckload (27) NTFS errors (2 attached) and one volsnap error. (attached) I didn't see anything seriously wrong in the smart attributes (attached) so I figured I'll just let Win8 fix it, and let it restart the computer.
For the next 20+ minutes the PC was doing all sort of weird things, including, but not limited to bluescreening and restarting, scanning and restarting, repairing and restarting, etc., in various combinations. I didn't count the number of restarts, but it was close to 2 dozens. I pretty much gave up after the first 5 minutes, but to much of my surprise, Win8 eventually booted just fine. Ran CHKDSK, and no problem or bad sector was found.
Any idea on what may have been happening? And what's that shadow copy / volsnap error? Drive C: has 92GB free of 120GB, so I'm at a complete loss there.
