Hello. I HOPE this is the right sub forum.
I have a Toshiba Satellite C675 running on Windows 7 Home Premium.
For the past month I have been getting an alert upon start up that says:
Toshiba HDD/SSD Alert - unable to get disk information
Everything works just fine still EXCEPT for one problem. I am a graphic designer and I am always in Photoshop creating PNG files, after awhile (can be 8 hours, or can be as little as 1 hour) the alert will pop back up in the bottom task bar and then suddenly the PNG I was working on won't save. I will have to save it as a TIFF. If I try to open any other PNG files they will not open it says it can not parse the file type. In the preview of the PNG in the folder, it has a black background behind it instead of a white one. I have to reboot then I get another hour or several, whenever it decides to stop saving PNGs again.
This isn't life or death but it is horribly inconvenient taking me 2-3 times longer to work on projects because i have to keep checking each PNG to see if it saved.
Does anyone know if there is a fix for this or may I need a new hard disk?
Thank you in advance for your wisdom!
