Hi,

First, go to the "My Computer». Select your disks one by one and reproduce the following operation. Right-click on the disk and then "Properties". In the "Tools" tab, select "Check Now." A window opens. Check both options auto repair and data recovery, and validate. The disc can turn safely. Do not hesitate to repeat this procedure every brutal cut of power to your computer.

I think what you want to do is check the physical health of your hard disk and that would be easy using disk utility applications. One disk utility you can use is PC Tools Performance Toolkit. Follow the instructions to download and unpack and then install it. Once installed, start PC Tools then go to “Recovery” tab and click “Repair Drives”.

PC Tools check the health of the drives

On the next screen under “Select Drive Operation”, select “Surface Scan” to check the drive physically. Select the drive to check from the list then click “Start”. If you see “Drive cannot be repaired”, click “Continue” then repeat the same steps again.

PC Tools prompted with error

When you’re back in “Repair Drive” screen, this time check “Perform on reboot” then click “Start” and then “Continue”. Restart your computer and PC Tools will diagnose your drive while booting.

PC Tools check perform on reboot

After booting, start PC Tools again then go back to the “Repair Drive” screen by following the same steps. You should see the result of the test here. If you want to check the health of the partitions on the hard disk, go back to the “Repair Drive” screen and select “Check Partition Structure” then click “Start”.

PC Tools will check the structure of the existing partitions on the disk for errors. The result should look something like this.
