    Cannot repair the drive

    Ni Eric, are you using chkdsk to repair the drive?

    And if you are, you need to use a command like this for it to repair any errors found::

    chkdsk c: /f /r

    If that is what you have done, and it has not worked, below is a web page with a list of free tools for repairing bad sectors on your hard drive:

    Partly that, "Why are crashes so bad for your disk? They can cause bad sectors, luckily soft bad sectors. Bad sectors are segments on your hard drive that cannot be properly read. So for example if your machine crashes, sectors, including boot sectors can
    become corrupt and cause issues. If you don’t use software to mark and repair bad sectors they can get worse over time and corrupt more data. Sometimes you can no longer use your disk at all if you don’t get rid of corrupt sectors.

    Now, as I said...if your computer can repair the bad sectors there is nothing to worry about but keep an eye on it especially if the errors are not repaired.

    Free software to repair hard disk bad sectors

    I don't have the answer you want, except that I am wondering if you have already run the disk check method built-in for Windows.

    Right click at Start > select Command Prompt (Admin) > in the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.................
    chkdsk f/r
    > Enter.

    You will be told that it cannot perform the command now but if you want to do that on restart.
    Type Y as in "yes" > Enter.
    Restart computer.
    It will take quite some time.
    When completed, it will give you a report.

    I'm assuming the native disk check is sufficient? I've never heard of people using third party software.

    Already tried but it is hanging at 14% and then boot into Windows without fully checking the disk.

    There isn't any software that can repair physical deficiencies in the hardware (some may hide it, but that's just a temporary solution, the defective disk will deteriorate rapidly in other areas as well).

    If chkdsk can't re-structure the filesystem around the bad bits, it's time to backup what you can and lay it to rest.

    I realize this thread has been marked as solved, but just for future reference there's a free diagnostic tool from Seagate called SeaTools. From the user manual:
    One cautionary note, however. If a drive is failing, any diagnostic check could stress the drive to complete failure. It's always best to backup the drive as soon as possible.
