I am getting a "Toshiba HDD/SDD Alert, cannot access HDD" message. I looked under programs and found a Toshiba folder that allowed me to reinstall the alert device for the HHD monitor alert. It asked me...

Hi there lauren,

You need to REINSTALL the Toshiba HDD/SDD Alert Monitor. Try to look at the setup file under Program Files directory and inside the My Toshiba folder. It would be better to remove the program first thru the Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.

Should you need further assistance, please let me know.

Good Luck!
