kindly check attached screen shot.
if any can help to resolve issue.
Mechanical hard drives are quite sensitive and prone to physical failure or crash. Mechanical shock, corrupt drivers, improper use, or mishandling of drive or system can cause disk errors that can lead to logical corruption, mechanical failure, and physical crash.
Below are the few ways to check and ensure hard disk health:
- Check SMART status
- Physical inspection of the drive
- Run CHKDSK scan
- Check Read/Write speed test
- Defragment the drive
- Update the drives driver
Hope this will help you out.
