Hi potassium and welcome to SevenForums...

Your data will be fine ... Let the scan run and repair the errors, or you can run chkdsk /r from an elevated command prompt...

And if u keep getting this error after you've done the check a few times, then there's USB problem. I had that problem and it was so annoying.
