As is, I personally don't know anyone who has run chkdsk on their systems since the Windows 95 days.
The problem here is that W7 and W2k8R2 share a code base. I'm curious if this bug affects that OS as well. Chkdsk gets run on servers a BIT more than workstations (SMART and RAID monitoring is a bit better, of course). Chkdsk is nice when you want a basic disk scan without having to bring the server down. 95% resource usage would make this difficult.
