    Harddrive in need of repair

    Due to some issues starting with Steam, I have come to find my D: drive claims to need repairing. the event viewer had this to show after error checking.

    Chkdsk was executed in scan mode on a volume snapshot.

    Checking file system on C:

    Any thoughts or is there more info I need to supply?


    UPDATE: New Info

    Chkdsk was executed in scan mode on a volume snapshot.

    When I do a Chkdsk it says repairs need to be done, but this seem to say otherwise? I assume I just don't understand it. I also noticed it says C: drive but this was performed on the D: drive. I checked the C: drive and it is fine.

    I understand you dont have access to the computer, but any idea what could have caused it? general wear and tear or something more specific?

    Re: Harddrive in need of repair

    There's really no rule. A HDD can last for years and it can die within a few months. It all depends on luck. Of course if the computer hasn't been banged on or kicked or if it hasn't fallen or something similar.

    It is about 4-5 years old. Luckily, I only had Steam and games on there. Thanks for the help.
