    Download was probably corrupt or there was a bad spot on the disk.

    The Windows scandisk is not the best drive check utility. Disk may be fine and the download was corrupt. Bad disk section is just one of the options.
  6. what is best for checking?

    Full disk check utility, either from the hard-drive vendor, the computer vendor, or a program like HD Tune.
  8. it will take ages with these programs:)

    Depending on the size of the disk, it can take a long time. That's because it actually scans for several different types of errors and does a much more thorough job that the Windows checkdisk utility. You don't need to run all of them, just one that will work with your hardware.
  10. ok thanks
