Chkdsk takes up to several hours to run, it may not look like it is doing anything initially. I would allow it to run the chkdsk, if it doesn't still offer this options, use the instructions below.
Go to Start and click on My Computer.
Right click on the drive in which you want chkdsk to run. The C: drive is usually contains your operating system.
Click on Properties and click the Tools tab. In the Error-checking box, click the Check Now button.
Set up the Check Disk options by checking one or both check boxes displayed.
To repair errors without scanning the volume for bad sectors, select the Automatically fix file system errors, and then click Start.
To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors, and then click Start.
In this case I would suggest the first option.
Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.
