One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency


I have got two hard disk on my desktop one of them is called C for OS XP SP3 and other is called D for program files and Data

Recently whenever I restarted my PC I would have been experiencing the message below

Checking file system on D :
Type : NTFS

One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended that you continue.

Windows will now check the disk.

CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3)
File verification completed

CHKDSK is verifying indexes (stage 2 of 3 )
File verification for completed

CHKDSK is verifying security descriptors (stage 3 of 3 )
Security descriptors completed

After that I could not write the whole message

What could be causing this problem ?

  1. Corrupt file or files... possibly corrupt file system. Best thing to do is a chkdsk with a surface scan. Your hard drive could be failing.
