Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You will need admin rights.

-Open windows explorer (right-click on the “Start” button and select “Explore”)
-Right-click on the C: drive and select “Properties”
-Select the “Tools” tab and in the “Error-checking” section click the “Check Now” button.

You could also run it from the command prompt (CMD) executing the chkdsk command (you might want to add the \f and/or \r switches to automatically fix error and/or recover bad sectors).

Keep in mind that checking the disk doesn’t guarantee that the problem will be fixed.

    Chkdsk.exe is a utility which verifies the logical integrity of a file system. In the event of the utility encountering logical inconsistencies in file system data, it will perform the necessary actions to repair the file system data. The equivalent utility in earlier versions of Windows was referred to as ScanDisk. As Carlosdl suggested is good. if the problem persists u may try out for this....go to command prompt and type: sfc /scannow (Space in between sfc and the /) & press Enter Now let the computer fix itself. This is called the System File Checker Tool and it checks all Windows files for any corrupt or missing ones. Thanks --
