Not so long ago, I used to be quite an active user on hardware forums and helped lots of users with advice on how to scan & fix HDD bad sectors. As a rule, I used to ask those details like how long has it been from a full hard disk drive scan (if any) or if they have ever used such tools. Most of them replied that they use Disk Cleanup from time to time, which lead me to think that it was the right time for them to meet a hard drive scan & fix application.
Heavy rain affected the hard disk factories in Thailand, and this will cause supply difficulties. For this reason, the prices of the equipment rose 50% in one week.
The global PC market is at risk because the leading producers of hard drives have difficulties to maintain their rate of production because of the repeated precipitation affecting Thailand.
Sometimes the software installed on your PC’s hard disk drive may crash. Also, Windows may itself crash. The hard disk needs to be checked for errors in order to have a completely functional system.
After a crash of your system or of some applications, you must check the integrity of your hard disk drive. Files in use at the time of the unexpected shutdown were probably lost or not properly registered on your hard disk drive and this can cause errors in the Windows file system and on the hard disk drive itself.
