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.

Are You talking about this?? (in pic)
Every time when connecting a phone nokia or s.ericsson i data storage mode I get this message.
When connecting a kingston dt its ok no message.
Is it safe to "Scan and fix" or turn of this message somehow?
