Hi Carlos,

What disk are you trying to run a Repair on is that your C Drive or some other disk?

Note down the Drive letter

Press the Shift Key and click Restart

Your PC will boot into the Windows Recovery Environment

Go to Troubleshoot - Advanced Options - Command Prompt

Run this command and hit Enter (replace X with the correct drive letter:

chkdsk X: /f

When that completes, run this command and hit Enter (replace X with the correct drive letter:

chkdsk X: /r

When that completes, close Command Prompt and restart your PC
