I take it, you have lost all your file now.

1) Scan the drive for damaged or corrupt files.

Are looking to recover files on the drive?

ive used the check disk scan, and it said there was nothing wrong with the disk, no im not looking for recovery of the disc, because there were nothing important on it. im just wondering if i have to buy a new one,and ive noticed that , when im trying to shut down the computer, it takes like 5 minutes or so,im thinking of re install w7 on the computer, its just so boring,he he
