Question about Hard Drives
If the hard drive is defective, there is no repair. If it has errors such as virus etc, then it can be repaired. I would have to know specifics such as operating system and what errors you have. When hard drives fail then they would have to be replaced. This is the reason you must back up your files, because all your data will be lost.
Hard drives are hardware devices that you use to store all of your programs and operating systems. They are many different kinds and capacity such as serial and parallel and the amount of space on the drive.Hard disk drive - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Click on the link and learn more.

A cyclic redundancy check error on a hard disk means that part of a file read from the hard disk doesn't match the expected value.
A cyclic redundancy check error, in other words, means that files on your hard drive are corrupted.
Repair a cyclic redundancy check error on a hard disk using the Check Disk tool in Windows.
Click "Start" and click "Computer."
Right-click the hard disk with the cyclic redundancy check error under "Hard Disk Drives" and click "Properties."
Click the "Tools" tab at the top of the hard disk "Properties" window.
Click "Check Now" under "Error Checking."
Select "Automatically Fix File System Errors" and "Scan for and Attempt Recovery of Bad Sectors" in the "Check Disk" window by clicking each option if it isn't already selected.
Start a disk check and repair by clicking "Start" in the "Check Disk" window.
Click "Yes" if the "Do you want to schedule the disk check to occur the next time you restart the computer?" prompt appears.
A disk can't be checked if it's in use, so you'll need to restart Windows to check it.
Restart your computer by clicking "Start," clicking the arrow icon to the right of "Shut Down" and clicking "Restart."
Fix a Cycle Redundancy Check Error
The "Cyclic Redundancy Check" error is a Windows error message telling you there's a problem reading data you're trying to access.
The root of this problem could either be a damaged storage device or a corrupt file.
Windows has built-in tools to attempt to fix to this problem, and avoid further errors.
Click on the "Start" menu in the bottom left-hand corner and click "Run."
Type in "cmd" and press "Enter" on your keyboard.
This will open a black command prompt box.
Type in "chkdsk /f" and press "Enter."
If you receive a message saying the disk will be checked the next time the system starts, press "Y" and then "Enter."
Restart your computer by closing the command prompt box and selecting "Shut Down" from the Start menu.
Wait for the disk scan to reach 100 per cent.
This may take awhile.
When it completes, your drive errors may be fixed.
Avoid future problems with this type of error by replacing the file that caused the problem.
For example, if you got the error when using a text document, open the document and copy all the text (press "Ctrl" and "A" at the same time and then "Ctrl" and "C" at the same time).
Create a new text document and paste the text in by pressing "Ctrl" and "V" simultaneously. Save the new file, and delete the old document.
