    Hey again MallyBob.

    All major manufacturers of hard drives offer free diagnostic tools for their drives. Just visit their websites.

    If you don't know your drive make, you can download and install SIW (System Information for Windows) and it will tell you more than you want to know. :)

    Here's the link!

    Yup. Though as I previously said, run check disk.
    From the command prompt:
    Code:
    chkdsk c: /f /r
    A good idea would be to make a system image with Macrium:
