    Please restart the computer and scan it for disk error check completely. When boot up completed then, run the disk defragment.

    Click Start, Run, type CMD and click on OK. At the command prompt, type CHKDSK /f /R

    It will tell you that the drive can't be locked, would you like to reschedule a checkdisk for the next system restart, answer yes. It will confirm, reboot, sit back and grab a drink while it scans. Hopefully that's a better explanation than the previous answer.
