Yesterday when I booted up my laptop, I was prompted to do a chkdsk. This is the first time it has ever asked me to do that and not sure what it means.


Awhile back I had tried to prompt my computer to do a chkdsk and to schedule it to do it at boot, but never would.


I have the file attached.

Windows detected problems in the file system and needed to run chkdsk to correct them.


If it happens again soon, there may be a problem developing with the hard drive. If not, I wouldn't worry about it. Continue your regularly scheduled backup routine and you'll be prepared for the eventual hard drive failure.
