backup! if u can afford to loose ur data dont worry then. and of course u wont need 500gb, unless it is full. and event viewer will tell you what is wrong. usually a chkdsk will resolve some/most issues from error msgs like that in windows.

Its probably a sign of failing HDD
Test your HDD to confirm it

I have Seagate drives & you should have SeaTools but
CrystalDiskInfo
can give you more information on the important SMART data.

You need to invest in an external HDD to create an image as soon as you are able to.
