"Win-X/Command Prompt (Admin) will bring up an environment where CHKDSK can run"  Sorry.  I don't understand your answer.  I don't know what a command prompt is nor how to make it appear.  Then once I got there, what would I do?
Is there a way to convert your answer to step by step?  Thanks.

Now I understand!  I couldn't figure out what WinX was, like some old version of Windows??  But  Win-X, made sense as 2 keys.  I also get confused with all the "how to do" in this language.  Step by step for us forever beginners.  Thanks.
