Can you help me correct this? Thanks, L. Rabon

if this is constantly happening, disable write caching on the drive

right click the drive in My Computer > properties > hardware > properties > policies

otherwise if it is a rare occurence, just leave it alone, disabling write caching will affect your drive performance

If you are shutting down by using the power button on the case - The bios usually has an option to add a few seconds to the shutdown. Its like going from something like 'Instant off' to 'Delayed'
