ChkDsk: "Deleting corrupt attribute record"?

I've got six backup drives that I rotate. One is always on the
PC, one is offsite, and four are on site.

Each time I rotate, I run ChkDsk on the drive that I just
mounted.

My gut says to reformat the drive and start over if there are any
errors at all. Not a huge deal, but I figure no sense losing
those backups if there isn't a halfway-cogent reason.

How bad is "Deleting corrupt attribute record (128, "") from file
record segment 21342".

I got eleven of those bad boys on the drive I just checked.

Adding /F to ChkDsk resulted in "Deleting orphan file record
sentiment nnnnnn" repeated 10 times.... (not eleven....)
