Can you disable hibernation altogether?

Have you got a Windows CD - it doesn't need to be Win8, an older
version will do - from which you can boot and run `CHKDSK /F` on all
the drives? That should leave them clean.

Might be worth giving them a defrag, too. Defraggler is quick,
thorough and has a freebie eval version.

Also, you could use Windows Disk Management to shrink the Windows
partition and make room for Ubuntu. (Post-defrag, that is.)
