You can check to see if the disk has any errors.

Go to Start > Run and type in ‘chkdsk /r’ without the quotes then hit the ENTER key.

You should get a black window with white writing telling you that Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Type in ‘Y’ without the quotes to check the next time the system restarts. Hit the ENTER key and restart your computer.

Chkdsk will run and look for any hard drive problems. It may take 30 minutes to a few hours depending on the size of your hard drive.
