Hi xI CurLs ... :wave: ..:welcome:

first backup all your data...picture music and any documents you need/want

then try running run chkdsk /r
NOTE the single space before the /
click on start...type in...chkdsk /r

if for any reason you can't run chkdsk /r or it wiil not complete you will have to try running manufacture specific testing tools

pick the tool thats made for your particular drive and always use the long tests if offered

for Western Digital drives go here
Use the Find by Model Number on the right side

for Seagate and Maxtor drives ...get seatools here

for Fujitsu drives go here

for Hitachi drives go here

for Samsung drives go here

Toshiba does not provide diagnostic tools for their hard drives...

If the drive passes the hard drive tests... try running chkdsk /r again ...it can fix small problems with system files

Also if it is a Toshiba hard drive, usually you can still run a diagnostic on it using another test. For example the Seagate "Seatools" program will let you run a generic test on the drive. This will still give you an indication of the drive's health.
