This problem is related to my WD External HDD.
It has developed File System Errors. I found that out when I saw that the HDD is taking unusually long time to read the data and whenever I try to open a file or folder, explorer.exe crashes.
I checked the SMART status of the drive using GSMartControl and it says that SMART status is OK.
So , is it safe to use the in-built method to recover the FS or should I use some external tool?
Also, I dont want to lose data. Please help!
I tried defragging the HDD and that is what I get: stuck on 63%
