  1. Run CHKDSK in readonly mode. This will tell you what is wrong with the file system.

    Then try a comprehensive SMART diagnostic. Look for reallocated, pending, or uncorrectable sectors. This will tell you if the drive has physical problems.

    HD Sentinel (DOS / Windows / Linux):

    HDDScan for Windows:

    See this article for SMART info:

    Your next step will depend on what you find.
