comment How to check integrity of system if Wubi not shut down properly
Thanks for your help again, bcbc! It seems I have a horse shoe up my backside because I ran fsck first without considering the NTFS. Note that no errors were detected with fsck (which I ran in recovery mode). I have since checked the NTFS using chkdsk. No errors were detected for either drive C: nor drive D:. I think what saved me was the fact that I have root.disk installed on the D: drive under Windows 7, while NTFS does its journaling on the C: drive. That, and the fact that the laptop had been left idle for a couple of hours before the battery ran flat....

@the_Seppi - What I mean is the wubi installation of Ubuntu. If you need specific version numbers, it is Ubuntu 14.04 (32-bit) LTS.
