Hello.

I have an external hard drive. I did the check for errors thing from properties>tools. I checked the options "automatically fix file system errors" and "scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors". After some time I thought the scan froze up so I hit cancel and not the disk is unusable. It says "X:\ is not accessible. Access is denied." Same message if I try the error checking option again.

Please help.

the tests revealed a problem. the longer test actually took hours and then said the test couldn't complete because there were too many errors.

however on restarting the machine, the drive is working perfectly. i tried opening some files and they're working fine, data transfer rate is good too.

i'm going to back up as much as possible, but is there anything i should worry about? anything i can do to fix the errors? the drive was working fine before i did the check for errors thing.
