okay i've run the short generic, short DST and SMART tests. my harddrive has passed those three.
not sure if more tests are required, i'm running the long DST test now.

is that enough information for a follow-up here?

Have you also done these?

Run sfc /scannow from an elevated (run-as-admin) command prompt.

Also run chkdsk /r /f after the system file checker finishes.

Depends on the size of your drive - probably a few hours for the full chkdsk.

Chkdsk should ask you in that case if you want to do it on the next reboot. Confirm that then reboot the computer to run it.
