Click start control panel administration tools computer management disc management right click on your drive select properties tools check now scan for and attempt to recovery bad sectors and

automatically fix any file system errors tick in both boxes or tick one box then wait until it has finished then return and tick in the other box

i have found the best results ticking the first box then returning after chkdsk has finished automatically fixing files

you should have no input while chkdsk is running any input might further damage your hard drive

hope this helps you

My pc havet a drive for my flash memory


If you want to format to remove all the data from your flash drive and wipe it clean you do not need a program as you can do it through windows.
Step 1 - Plug in your flash drive to a working usb port Step 2 - Click on start and then click My Computer. Step 3 - Find your memory stick. In most cases drive C is your hard drive and drive D is your disc drive. This means that your memory stick is most likely drive E. It is a removable storage device and not your hard drive. This is very important because you don't want to format your hard drive. Step 4 - Back up any data you want to keep from your flash drive. When you are done with the formatting everything will have been removed from it. Drag the files you want to keep from your memory stick onto a folder on your computer. Step 5 - In your My Computer folder right click on your flash drive icon and click format.

My K770i says to reformat but i do not wanna lose my pics


Cellphones have a nasty habit of being very picky about how their memory cards are formatted (especially verizon phones). You will need to plug it into a computer and remove everything off of it. Most multi-media card readers will accept this format of flash media. If you still wish to use it in your phone afterwards you'll have to let it format it.

Problem with corrupted files


Dont panic... Just insert the memory stick in to a card reader and donot try to open it. but make sure that your memory stick gets detected.Then you can use any of the file recovery softwares to recover the photographs with out formating.I generally use the free app "PC file recovery". In case your memory stick is not detected in the first place, then There is no other option other than formatting. But the recovery software can recover 90% of the photos even after formatting.
If this doesnt work, post back. I will explain in more detail.
