Thats a summed up version of my issue.
the error I have been getting is a such 
ERROR: patch extraction. failed archive extraction. (0x80070017) Data error (cyclic redundancy check). occurred during extraction "" from "C:\WoT Final Try\Updates\wot_9.21.13542_client.wgpkg; " to "C:\WoT Final Try\UpdatesData\client\wot_9.21.13542_client.wgpkg\"
26/12/2017 00:18:57  ERROR: patch extraction. name: "wot_9.21.13542_client.wgpkg", what: extract file error: Data error (cyclic redundancy check)., msg: name="wot_9.21.13542_client.wgpkg" file="" to="C:\WoT Final Try\UpdatesData\client\wot_9.21.13542_client.wgpkg\"
1. Full Uninstall and re-install fails to work.
2. running a disk check and repair fails
3. tried to do a factory reset which failed to even work

I didn't look at your link but CRC errors are generally associated with bad sectors on your hard disk drive. I would normally suggest running chkdsk /R as an administrator but it appears you have already done that. Look at other options under chkdsk /? and run them. Try the repair disk if you have one. Otherwise google the errors or failures and hope you get lucky. I suspect your disk drive is failing.

Did you follow WG’s instructions for a complete wipe of the game from your system?  The only time I ever had an issue that solved the problem.

So with it being a possible disk drive failure which i have been suspecting it is, the fastest solution would be to replace the entire hard drive.

Correct. I believe chkdsk /R is the highest level repair feature (it repairs and/or removes the sector from service) and if it fails to complete then disk drive replacement is recommended. Try the lower level features such as /f and if it completes then try /R again. It has worked for me in the past.
