For Sure! On the left side menu Select Surface Test and click the Start Now button. Let me know when finished. If it asks to repair anything say YES.

 

After that, Run the Check file operation

 

I have to take care of a few things let me know when this is done.

Give a label name such as Windows etc

 

Create as "Primary"

File system "NTFS"

Drive Leter "C"

 

Leave the rest as they are and Click OK
