Try this:-

  1. Press the Windows Key + X, and select the Command Prompt (Admin) option.

  2. Click 'Yes' when you are presented with a UAC window requesting permission to launch the Command Prompt as Administrator.

  3. In the new Command Prompt window, type chkdsk E: /f /r /x. (replace E with your drive letter).

This will check the drive for errors, and repair them. If it doesn't fix the problem there are other options, but try it first.
