    Insufficient disk space to fix volume bitmap. chkdsk aborted

    It looks like the drive may have bad clusters. Instead of using Windows diagnostics try the HD makers tools by downloading it and running it before attempting anything. Let us know how it goes.

    Temporarily putting a halt on crunching

    Repairing bad sectors on a Hard Drive can take a very long time depending on how large the drive is. In my case for a 1 TB drive, it took 2 and a half hours in total.

    My current favourite distro

    Thank you! :) I actually forgot to mention that MX Linux is the one I chose for the IBM Laptop as it is very lightweight and works very nicely. I played around with MX Linux creating the Live USB and it works beautifully as a complete OS in the shirt pocket with your files on the go. I am...
