Hi guys. Just got this error when I switched on my computer.
One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. G:
The disk in question is one of the two partitions( F: and G: )of an old HD that I just slotted into my new system 3 days ago. It was working fine, and able to browse files on it fine until earlier. I let the dskchk run, and it found some errors and orphaned files etc.
Now when I'm in Windows, under My Computer, F: shows with details of space etc, and G: is there but doesn't show details. What do you suggest I do next?
My OS is in my new drive, so it isn't a problem. This old drive has been with me for 7 years, and I'm wondering if it could be failing. Also, I was shifting the CPU earlier, could it have been due to that?
EDIT: Just tried accessing G: in My Computer, and after the green bar filled up for a while, a message popped up saying "G: needs to be formatted before use. Do you want to format it now?" I clicked No, and then an error message popped up saying "G: is not accessible. Data Error: Cyclic Redundancy Check"
