In Safe Mode
Restart the computer in Safe Mode (press repetitive F5 or F8 during startup before loading Windows).
- Open My Computer (icon on the desktop),
- Select the drive of your choice > Right -Click
- Properties >Tools > Check Now
Verification at startup
Open an MS-DOS window:
- Start> Run > cmd
- Type: chkdsk c:/F
- If the computer asks if you want to check on the next restart, confirm with O Input, and then restart your computer.
This solution is recommended because it allows Windows to perform an audit of the disc before the programs started.
