Are you certain the error is HTFS and not NTFS? Could you provide the complete error message? –  scrappedcola Mar 21 '11 at 21:27
    
No is not NTFS. –  Gogoo Mar 21 '11 at 21:27
    
And every time is trying to check my disk. –  Gogoo Mar 21 '11 at 21:29
    
From what I can find HTFS is a journaling file system. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Throughput_File_System. The wiki page is a rough description so basically you have a disk error that Windows is trying to fix. –  scrappedcola Mar 21 '11 at 21:33
    
CHECKING FILE SYSTEM....THE FILE NAME IS HTFS. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU DO THE CHECKING OF THE DISK. IF YOU WANT TO CANCEL PRESS ANY KEY. –  Gogoo Mar 21 '11 at 21:42

The best thing to do is allow Windows to perform the disk scan. It could take quite some time to complete. This type of error happens when the computer suffers a power-loss or after a blue-screen error. It's also possible that the hard drive itself is going bad.
