To fix all types of hard drive-related problems, you need to run the CHKDSK scan. There are multiple ways to run the chkdsk command; the easiest is using the command prompt. Here’s how to run the Chkdsk command via Command Prompt.

1. Click on the Windows 11 search and type in Command Prompt. Next, right-click on the Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.

2. On the Command prompt window, execute the command:

chkdsk /x:

Important: Replace x with the name of the drive you want to scan.

3. Now, wait for a few seconds until the scan completes. Once completed, you need to scan the hard drive for bad sectors. For that, execute the command:

chkdsk /r x:
