Try this 1

Click on Start --> Run --> Type cmd and press Enter.

"Command Prompt" will be opened.

Since you are having problem with G & H drivers, enter the below command

chkdsk /f g:
--> Press Enter.

chkdsk /f h:
--> Press Enter.

Good Luck
Thank you

Well, I didn't have so much luck as you here above me; it has been a disaster, really. After introducing the commando <chkdsk /f f:> and hitting <Return> Windows found de partition corrupted and began deleting my entire disk without asking. Now I'm busy trying to recover my data. It is costing me hours of time and much stress.
