    Did I corrupt my files on my USB HDD ?


    I was downloading a file to my USB HDD then suddenly my computer froze..I know that the file I was downloading gets corrupted and I have to download it again...but how about other files on the USB drive ? Do they get corrupted too ?

    Welcome to the forum. It shouldn't effect other files but it's still best to run a disk check on the drive

    Does it matter when to run the check disk ? Because after it froze I restarted then I completed the download and unplugged the drive without running check disk...then I plugged it back in and ran check disk and no errors were found.. Am I ok ?

    and by check disk you mean this: Screenshot-2021-01-08-080014 — ImgBB

    Here is the result of chkdsk g: /r :C:\WINDOWS\system32>chkdsk g: /f /rThe type of the file system is NTFS.Sta - Pastebin.com

    pressing the restart button doesn't make a difference....does it ?

    Windows has scanned the file system and found no problems. No further action is required.
    That's all you need to know from the Check Disk log.
