When I discovered that a number of images and files are being corrupted (I can't open them anymore but it worked fine a few months ago), I became worried and wanted to run a scan for bad sectors, however, I cannot do so.
When I try to run the disk check from the properties in "My Computer", an error pops up saying that windows is unable to complete the disk check. When I tried to run it in the command prompt (ie typing chkdsk) It says: The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). click on OK to terminate the application.
How do I, if possble, solve the problem of corrupted files and the disk checker?
