Longtime windows techie - pretty new to Mac's - from what I have gathered over past few months I only see about 4 options - 3 free, the paid one may be the best option depending on what your needs are for the data on the drive
1) Try booting from your OS X disk and running Disk Utitlity from there
2) An archive and re-install of the OS - should save all your files
3) A fresh install - will lose everything
4) Or Disk Warrior
- not free, but very good reviews everywhere
edit: There could be others I am missing - maybe wait for some agreement or other options
I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
