Windows 7: Hard Drive "Corrupt" but files still work

Thanks, fixed it... I had to buy new external hard drive then convert the new one and drag the files from old one, one folder at a time... glad they came out with usb 3.0 now with 1.5 tb thanks... also I formatted the entire hard drive (old one) to get it working again...

The thing is that when I first bought it, I forgot to format it, though the pc still reads it even if it's not formatted. I might use this on this new computer only so it doesn't mess up again ...

So earlier today, Windows told me it had an update to install. So, I shut down my computer like normal, then booted it back up. In the middle of booting, the black Check-disk screen came up (which is unusual), said something about the C:/ drive being NTFS and needing to scan it. It then...

Portable hard drive shows hidden files (prefixed with ".")
