  2. Defrag is reporting that it suspects there are errors on the drive. To
    run chkdsk on the drive, open a command prompt window and enter the
    following command:

    chkdsk [volume] /f

    Replace [volume] with the drive letter (ex: j:) that you want to check for
    errors. The /f switch tells chkdsk to fix any errors that it finds. Run
    chkdsk /? for a list of all the available options.
