Good morning Bill,
Thanks very much for the very helpful info below teling me how to scan and fix any errors on my external hard drive or any other drive. Muchly appreciated! Last evening I successfully scanned and fixed any errors on my external hard drive using your very helpful info below. Again thanks very much!
Just to let you know, I hadn’t yet seen this email below from you when I had sent you back that email last evening Mon Dec 14 asking if you live in Canada or not for me to consider possibly giveing you a call about fixing the errors on my external hard drive.
Again thanks very much for this very helpful info below,
Kindest regards,

Hi, Hank. A more reliable way to scan your drive is,


1. Determine the drive letter assigned to the drive that has problems.

2. Go to This PC, and arrow down to the drive in question, but do not press ENTER.

3. Press ALT plus ENTER on the drive letter.

4. Press CONTROL plus TAB until you hear Tools Tab.

5. When you hear the Error check button, check now, press ENTER.


This will scan and fix problems on the external drive.

I am using jfw2020 and Win10 2004 version. I am wondering in Win10 when a popup window appears such as one teling me that one of my external hard drives I have connected has errors and gives me the quick option for a few seconds to click on the option “scan and fix”, how do I find this quick pop up window so I can click on the option to scan and fix my external hard drive? Because when I alt tab around I cannot find anywhere this pop up window to scan and fix. Any help I can maybae get with this would be so very much appreciated! Much thanks in advance for any possible help with this.








Kindest regards,
