Open cmd. make sure you are in the right drive example drive "C".
Then type chkdsk /f answer yes on the question. After the process is finished you can defrag you drive.
Remember to do this on both drives if it the same message on both drives.
I did this with my USB drive. Worked like a charm.

Starnge issue, first thing I would do is download the bootable CDrom image for the hard drive manufacturer's test utility and verify if the drive has errors...
