My suggestion is to start from the beginning.
Open Disk Management select the disk, delete all partitions, create new, format as NTFS.

You MUST have a backup for all your data.
Never trust a disk.

I have two disks (same size) with OS. One is my working disk and the other my backup disk.
Backup HDD has win 7 and a lot of tools. It also has a working disk image.
Once a week I connect the power cable to it, boot from it and then do a data backup of my working disk. When done I shut down and disconnect the power cable.

Yes, I was thinking putting together some old parts and have a backup server machine.
Doing another checkdisk and surface scan this morning to make sure disk is alright before moving data again. HD's have been good to me fingers crossed lol
Thanks!
