Instructions For Fixing Hard Disk Errors:

We strongly recommend that you backup your computer to avoid potential data loss.

After you have backed up your computer, you should contact your computer manufacturer or other hardware technical support to determine if the disk with errors needs to be repaired or replaced.

We recommend that you store these printed instructions together with the media used to back up your data (for example, the CDs or USB flash drive used to store your backup), so that everything you need to fix your computer is in one place.

The following information is provided to help the hardware technical support person diagnose the hard disk with errors.

Disk Name: SAMSUNG HD253GJ ATA Device Volume: F:\;C:\;D:\

thank you

1. Hard drives can't really be repaired. Errors can be hidden from the user, but not fixed. In very simple terms: think of a hard drive as a tile floor, sectors being the tiles. When new, all tiles are good. The guy who laid the floor even left few spare tiles - just in case. As time goes, some tiles get cracked, but there are these spare tiles, so it's a simple job to replace the broken ones. It doesn't fix the broken tiles, they are still broken, you just use a spare one. When the spares are used up, all you can do is put a patch over broken tiles saying 'don't step here!'.

2. If you see such a warning message from your system (and it's a legit message, not a popup from a website trying to sell you some wondersoftware or a hdd), you better had backup done already. If you didn't, try to save as much as you can on an external hdd.

3. HDD replacement is a job an average person can perform, as long as you can deal with a few small screws and are not completely ham-fisted. The harder part is recovering your operating system and reconfiguring all software again - assuming that it was your system hard disk that failed.
