Hello, the solution is simple, Open start menu type “CMD” right click and “run it as Admin”
Take not of the drive you want to fix ie “J:” than type this
"chkdsk j: /f" Basically that is a command that will run a diskcheck on your drive j with a FIX parameter. It will fix any problem preventing the drive from reading. Also take note of how you write a drive thereâ€™s no \ just the letter and a colon. Also make sure you use forward slash before the f.
Once that completes you should type “convert j: /fs:ntfs” you wonâ€™t lose any data in this process except a file that is corrupting the drive. If you type it correctly it will ask for the name of the drive. type it how windows explorer sees it. Which is most likely the last one you attempted to put on the drive. But my sujestion is once it fixes the drive befor this step is to copy your files to your computer than use windows disk manager and format it. But that will erase any thing on the disk but a much more reliable process.
I can only assume you want NTFS file system because it can handle larger files, items over 4gb. Which is probably what you tried to place on this drive causing the crash?
