Open a Command Prompt and and run a CHKDSK /R when prompted to restart computer say Y and reboot..This will check you disk for problems and bad sectors and hopefully fix them. Also if you could go into Disk Management and post a screen shot of your current drive partition setup that would help, you may just have some unallocated space.
