Windows is Scanning and repairing drive... (- Errors in Event Viewer)

Long post, please be patient... :)
I have a fairly new (purchased 8/2013) Lenovo ThinkPad T431s with Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit (updated from 8.0 -> 8.1). It has a very tricky error coming basically 8 / 10 boots:
Windows is Scanning and repairing drive...
Error details from Windows Event Viewer (a new similar error appears on every boot to event viewer):
A corruption was discovered in the file system structure on volume \?\Volume{f62db2cf-efe4-4b55-a3f7-0e7db991a984}.
A file on the volume is no longer reachable from its parent directory. The parent file reference number is 0x2000000000002. The name of the parent directory is "". The parent index attribute is ":$I30:$INDEX_ALLOCATION". The file reference
number of the file that needs to be reconnected is 0x400000003db80. There may be additional files on the volume that also need to be reconnected to this parent directory.
What has been done 1st trying to fix that:
SSD disk has been changed (image from previous SSD copied back) ->
no solution, error remains
chkdsk /F /R -> no solution, error remains
SFC /scannow -> no solution, error remains
dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth -> no solution, error remains after a few boots
TRIED using Windows 8.1 "Update & Recovery -> Refresh Your PC without affecting your files" -> Inserted the Lenovo "Operating System Recovery Disk Windows 8 Pro (OEM Activation 3.0 Required)" BUT Windows did not accept
that DVD claiming "The media inserted is not valid"... ???
Ended up calling Lenovo Support and they instructed me to order the Recovery DVD from
Lenovorecovery.com -> Unfortunatelly Windows does not recognice the DVD(s)...
mountvol returns:
\\?\Volume{4d337687-0033-42f7-8a8e-b6968b533cb3}\
(This is my C:\ drive where Windows installation resides)
\\?\Volume{e010cf9d-c04d-4c82-b517-3cda1b647fe7}\
*** NO MOUNT POINTS ***
\\?\Volume{f62db2cf-efe4-4b55-a3f7-0e7db991a984}\
*** NO MOUNT POINTS ***
\\?\Volume{33f0062f-0aff-4fd2-8402-1c7911d86897}\
*** NO MOUNT POINTS ***
Then running fsutil dirty query on each returns:
Volume - \\?\Volume{4d337687-0033-42f7-8a8e-b6968b533cb3} is NOT Dirty
Volume - \\?\Volume{e010cf9d-c04d-4c82-b517-3cda1b647fe7} is NOT Dirty
Volume - \\?\Volume{f62db2cf-efe4-4b55-a3f7-0e7db991a984} is Dirty
Volume - \\?\Volume{33f0062f-0aff-4fd2-8402-1c7911d86897} is NOT Dirty
The chkdsk on the dirty volume
\\?\Volume{f62db2cf-efe4-4b55-a3f7-0e7db991a984}\ returned:
The type of the file system is NTFS.
Insufficient storage available to create either the shadow copy storage file or
other shadow copy data.
A snapshot error occured while scanning this drive. Run an offline scan and fix.
Diskpart output on the same volume:
DISKPART> lis par
Partition ### Type Size Offset
Partition 1 Reserved 128 MB 17 KB
Partition 2 Recovery 1000 MB 129 MB
Partition 3 System 260 MB 1129 MB
Partition 4 Primary 146 GB 1389 MB
Partition 5 Recovery 350 MB 147 GB
Partition 6 Recovery 19 GB 148 GB
Questions:
1) Are my Partitions OK, haven't "touched" anything?
2) Excluded the dirty volume from boot checking with chkntfs /x
-> still the Error appears in Event viewer log (but Scanning is skipped/not shown anymore during the boot).
What is causing the error?
3) Why do I have three (3) recovery partitions?

What has happened in the past days:
A) Lenovo on-site-Support changed the motherboard -> had no impact on the error (which I expected).
B) I found
instructions how to manually create USB Flash stick with a booting Custom (OEM) Recovery Image.
C) Booted with USB and performed "Refresh your PC without affecting your files."
D) Windows was refreshed but...

Still the error remains (Windows scanning and repairing drive \?\Volume{f62db2cf-efe4-4b55-a3f7-0e7db991a984} on each and every boot.
1) Related Error in Event viewer (NTFS):

2) Related Error in Event viewer (NTFS - Microsoft Windows NTFS):
Volume \\?\Volume{f62db2cf-efe4-4b55-a3f7-0e7db991a984} (\Device\HarddiskVolume5) needs to be taken offline to perform a Full Chkdsk.  Please run "CHKDSK /F" locally via the command line, or run "REPAIR-VOLUME <drive:>" locally or remotely via
PowerShell.

Now Lenovo support is proposing a full re-install (to be performed by myself) of Windows as this is SW issue.
Summary:
- Refreshing my T431s with OEM Image does not help
- The error remains on \?\Volume{f62db2cf-efe4-4b55-a3f7-0e7db991a984} (\Device\HarddiskVolume5; Lenovo Recovery partition) OR at least Windows thinks so...
