Use the Chkdsk utility
CHKDSK is a command that can be executed at the command prompt to check the logical integrity of the file system. CHKDSK’s full name is actually checkdisk; as its name suggests, it is designed to check for errors on the hard disk and then repair it. CHKDSK works on the basis of a specific partition file system to create and display the disk status. If CHKDSK is entered without parameters, people will see the status of the disc in the current drive.
The CHKDSK utility is found in all versions of Windows, such as Windows XP/7/8/10 and DOS. You can even run this command from a Windows installation disk.
Run it at the command prompt.
Step 1: Find the prompt on your computer as you wish.
Step 2: Run the command prompt as administrator.
Step 3: Enter “chkdsk” (often followed by a parameter such as “/f”, “/r” and “b”).
Step 4: Press “Enter” on the keyboard.
