Hi there and welcome

Can you do the following please

  1. Click Start, click All Program, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
  2. At the command prompt, type chkdsk /f.
  3. If you receive the following message, type Y, and then press ENTER:

    Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)

  4. Restart the computer to start the disk check.
  5. Then tell me if you still get the error please.
