Hi

I have a old Windows 2000 computer with SP4, and if I try to run a program or do anything this message pop ups The directory or file C: is corrupt or unreadable Please run chdsk utility or something similar.

I have used CHKDSK many times, and it has not worked. I have used chkdsk/f and /r WHat other repair tools are available to me

Do you guys know what software I can use other Chkdsk to fix this issue? I have a Maxtor 4D040H2 hard drive on a 495mb ram computer.

I have a limited budget.

It is an old drive and could actually be failing. Download and run the diagnostic from Maxtor.

Maxtor is now owned by Seagate. You download and run the Seatools drive tester here:

He's probably right. If your computer is throwing corrupt drive errors and chkdsk won't fix it, then it CAN'T be good news.

If I were you, I'd get a back up drive and start backing up data ASAP. Who knows how long that drive has left to live.

Apparently I cant get seatools to run. It shows an error message when it looks for drives.

Can you suggest a good inexpensive hard drive to replace it with?
