    Hello there,

    Can you share the exact error message or Event ID you are getting?

    Data corruption and disk errors cover different areas such as issues about accessing a drive, drive corruption, and slow performance.

    There are a bunch of reasons a disk or memory card might be missing or fail to initialize, with a common reason being that the disk is failing. There's only so much you can do to fix a failing disk, but here are some steps to try to see if we can get it working again. If the disk works after one of these steps, don't bother with the next steps, just kick back, celebrate, and maybe update your backups.
