“Tips to keep Your Computer Up and Function”

1.        Run a disk scan to check for hard drive issue
Run a Scan using Windows Error Checking
·         Open Computer/This PC and locate the external hard drive that needs checked.
·         Right-click on the drive and select Properties.
·         From the Properties screen, select the Tools tab.
·         On the Tools tab, click the Check Now button in the Error-checking section.
·         Select both check boxes to do a full scan of the drive and attempt recovery of data. This option may take longer, but will result in the recovery of data if the drive has corrupt sectors.
·         Wait for the process to finish. The larger the drive and/or the more errors it has, the longer the process will take.
·         When the process is complete, review the log.  If any bad sectors were repaired or data recovered, the drive may be usable, but you may want to consider replacing the disk as these errors could indicate potential drive failure in the future.
Run a Scan from the Command Line
·         Click Start | Run.  Enter CMD.  Click OK.
·         At the command prompt, enter the command CHKDSK E: /R where "E:" is the drive letter assigned to the drive by Windows. The /R option flag is the equivalent of checking both boxes in the GUI version of the scan.
·         Wait for the process to finish. The larger the drive and/or the more errors it has, the longer the process will take.
·         When the process is complete, review the results on the screen.  If any bad sectors were repaired or data recovered, the drive may be usable, but you may want to consider replacing the disk as these errors could indicate potential drive failure in the future.
·         Enter the command EXIT and press Enter on the keyboard to close the command prompt window.
2.        Run a defragmentation program
·         Start
·         All Programs
·         Accessories
·         System Tools
