    How to check hard drive errors for errors in Windows 7?

    I am currently using Windows as the operating system of my computer. In order to prevent loss of data and other problem I would like to have a hard drive scan on my computer. As I don’t know how to do this any advice from anyone is appreciated. Can anyone help me?

    You can adopt the scan disk components within the windows in order to ignore the loss of data. Since you are using Windows 7, go to the start menu and click on computer. When my computer is open just right click on the drive which you want to run the disk and just click on the properties in it. Select the disk tab under the disk properties. Under the error checking section click on the ‘check now’ tab. Now check all the options which is under the check disk option. You should make sure that you have the administrative privilege to access this.

    Checking the Hard drive is a good habit and should be done once in a while.

    Log in to the system as an Administrator by providing administrator password, or if you are and admin then normally log in.
    Click Start orb, type cmd and press enter.
    Type at the Command Prompt , C:\> chkdsk ( drive letter ) and press enter, chkdsk will scan the disk and mmaintain the drive and file then finish with a report.

    Click Start orb, select All Programs--Accessories--System Tools--Disk Defragmenter and your disk space and fies will be organized.

    you can download a third party utility software from the internet which can do scanning and repairing jobs even better provided there is not too much of physical error in the syatem.
