I have recently just reformatted my computer. Running at the operating system of Windows XP. I have 4 additional hard drive space that were left over from before the reformattiing. 3 of them work fine, the last one keeps saying this everytime i open it.

"runtime error!
program c:\windows\explorer.exe
this application has requested the runttime to terminate it in an unusual way, please contact the application's support team for more information"

I only experience it with 1 drive, the others work fine. Got any clue whats going on??

you could have some bad sector in your HDD.
you can download some HDD diagnostics from the HDD vendor.
