    remove that if it is empty. I to play it safe would run a chkdsk from a CMD Prompt. If you want to thank me press that thumbs up button on the far left. I am very happy that I was able to help you. You may want to download Macrium Reflect 7.0 it is a free backup program where you can image or clone your HD. You should be able to get it here: Download Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - MajorGeeks . Welcome to TF BTW:
    You've helped a ton. I had to go back into my BIOS to put the windows boot manager at the top of the list, but now everything is booting fine. I'll run chkdsk from the command prompt. What options do you suggest for chkdsk?

    I do an image of my system daily. It is worth it and it is free. Takes about 5 minutes.

    Just ran chkdsk on both drives and everything is fine. Thanks again for the big help!

    This was a good reminder of how important backups are. I've been sloppy but after this I really need to keep on it.
