That just means a very very tiny part of your harddrive is not readable. 8kb on most computers is like a grain of salt at the beach.

You should always make sure to back up your information onto either a thumb drive, external harddrive or CD/DVD.

How to use the disk error checking utility...


As you use your hard drive, it can develop bad sectors. Bad sectors slow down hard disk performance and sometimes make data writing (such as file saving) difficult, or even impossible. The Error Checking utility scans the hard drive for bad sectors, and scans for file system errors to see whether certain files or folders are misplaced.If you use your computer daily, you should run this utility once a week to help prevent data loss.

  1. Close all open files.
  2. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
  3. In the My Computer window, right-click the hard disk you want to search for bad sectors, and then click Properties.
  4. In the Properties dialog box, click the Tools tab.
  5. Click the Check Now button.
  6. In the Check Disk dialog box (called Error-checking in Windows 7), select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, and then click Start.
  • If bad sectors are found, choose to fix them.
  • Tip: Only select the "Automatically fix file system errors" check box if you think that your disk contains bad sectors.

    I have an 500GB toshiba external hardrive,it still has 50G more space left..however when i tried to open it again..it wont open...it only shows the properties and said that windows cannot correct the bad...


    There is no way to fix a bad sector. A bad sector is like a scratch on a cd that can't be fixed. You should run a program like "HD Tune", when you use a program what it does is it will read the disk and when it can't read a certain spot it marks it as a bad sector. After that the hard drive will move the data from the bad sector to a spare area of the hard drive. The spare area will store the data from a bad sector and will be usable like the old one. However if you get too many bad sectors you will run out of spares. When that happens your drive will crash.

    You Can Try These Steps: Windows comes with a built-in hard disk utility software that scans your hard disk for errors and attempts to fix them.
    1. On My Computer, select the disk drive that you want to diagnose and repair.
    2. Right click on it and select Properties
    3. Go to Tools tab.
    4. Click on the "Check Now" button under "Error Checking Status".
    5. Depending up on your choice, choose either "Automatically fix file system errors" or "Scan for and Attempt Recovery of Bad Sectors."
    6. Then click on Start.
