It means your computer want to check with a scan on your f drive for bad sector / errors , At which time it will try to correct
The f is unrelated to the drive name. The f stands for fix. Read the this microsoft article
about chkdsk, what it does and the different syntax codes. I agree that the system is wanting to check your drive for repairs. To do this, restart the computer and chkdsk should run on its own. If it doesn't, click on start
, then run
. Type in command
. In the screen that comes up type in chkdsk /f
if you only have one volume, which is the usual case. Make sure to include the space. You will likely get a message asking if you want chkdsk (stands for check disk) to run when the computer starts up again. Type yes or click on yes. (You must be logged on as an administrator in order to do this). Then restart the computer. It will take quite some time for it to finish doing its job. Please be patient.
