Hello! Recently, a previous hard drive of mine was on the verge of failing, so I cloned the content into a newer hard drive. However, after a month of usage, my newer hard drive has begun to disk check every few days by moving corrupted files.
During one of these disk checks, I jotted a few lines down that included "corrupt attribute," "index $I30," and "recover orphaned file."
As I mentioned earlier, this has been happening every few days when I start my computer (a black screen appears with some white text, followed by windows 7 starting and redownloading some software.) After this, nothing seems to have changed since the last boot up: all my files seem to be there.
My only guesses as to what is wrong are:
-My disk cloned improperly/ I used a bad disk cloner (Macrium Reflect)
-I have a virus
-I received a bad hard drive (once in a while, I will hear a single incredibly loud click, similar to the sound of the clicks a failing hard drive usually emits, but I am not sure if this sound is originating from my hard drive)
I also have my old hard drive in my computer, but I powered it off in BIOS. Could that be a potential problem? I really appreciate any answers that will be able to help me identify my problem. If any extra information is needed, I will gladly provide it. Thank you!
