I want to run CHKDSK to check if my hard drive is on the way out,however, I get the message: Access denied you do not have sufficient privileges. You have to invoke this utility running in elevated mode.

Can anyone advise how I can get around this? This is my own computer and no-one else has had access to change my permissions.

Then there is always a simple method of rebuilding with just a few clicks.
