Every few weeks my computer will become unusably slow with lots of error messages e.g. "this or that has stopped working", or just won't boot into windows. I use the Windows Diagnostics / Fix utility thing to get the command prompt and run
CHKDSK /R/F and my computer will be usable again.. for a few weeks until I have to go through the process again.
Each time I run CHKDSK it'll report that it had to replace a number of bad clusters in files xyz.
I've reformatted & reinstalled a few times and I get the same behaviour regardless. Does this mean my hard drive is slowing failing?
